2018 Lapostolle, Cuvee Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon, Central Valley, Chile

$215

The aroma on the 2018 Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon sucks you right into the glass. It opens with lots of dark fruit and well-integrated baking spice along with some beautiful floral notes. Tasting reveals a smooth and lush Cab with lots of ripe, juicy, rich fruit plus plenty of spice, cola, licorice, a little bit of mint, a touch of chocolate and just a hint of a herbal green note. It really opens up nicely after a couple hours in the glass. With great depth of flavor this is a tremendously tasty Cab. It ends dry, slightly grippy and very long with all the flavors from the palate lingering for quite a while on the finish.

“The blackcurrants and violets are impressive on the nose with hints of slate. Full-bodied, yet always refined and in check. Linear and tight. Black olives and blue fruit at the finish.” –  95 points James Suckling
