A stunner. This coats the palate with cassis blackberry and boysenberry fruit but stays focused and pure with vanilla spice and toast notes chiming in on the palate for added effect. The finish then resonates with purity... A stunner. This coats the palate with cassis blackberry and boysenberry fruit but stays focused and pure with vanilla spice and toast notes chiming in on the palate for added effect. The finish then resonates with purity. A thoroughly seductive wine that glides effortlessly despite its obvious power and depth. Carmenère Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2009. 3000 cases made. -JM

The Clos Apalta luxury cuvee primarily based on an old vine non-irrigated Carmenere parcel remains one of Chile's standard-bearers.

The Clos Apalta luxury cuvee primarily based on an old vine non-irrigated Carmenere parcel remains one of Chile's standard-bearers. Herbal minty aromas of candied black fruits are found in the aromatic profile of the 2000 Clos Apalta. A feminine detailed wine it exhibits a medium to full-bodied character filled with pure red as well as black cherry fruit. Fresh lively and lush this outstanding effort displays a slightly firm finish that will require some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012. Importer: Moet Hennessy USA New York NY; tel.
