2009 Casa Lapostolle "Clos Apalta" Red Blend Colchagua Valley

SKU #1139605 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This gorgeous wine deftly balances polished cassis, dark cherry reduction and blueberry notes on a compact frame. Structured, with silky tannins lining the long finish that lingers on with hints of apple wood, spice box and underbrush. (NW) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a ripe red with plum and dark berry character. Full body, soft and juicy tannins and spice and tobacco character. Fresh and linear. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Typically intense, polished and smooth up front, this has concentrated aromas of graphite, cola, wild berry, spice, coconut and wood. It feels full and makes a statement on the palate, where baked, earthy, fully loaded flavors of clove, herb and black fruit hold court. Oaky and spicy on the finish, this needs another 2-4 years to fully settle. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* (MS) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The flagship 2009 Clos Apalta is a blend of 78% Carmenere, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot that is raised in new French oak over 24 months. It has a reticent nose at first that demands some coaxing, eventually offering black cherries, red currant and vanilla aromas that remain tight in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine balance, grainy ripe tannins, a core of blackberry and blueberry fruit laced with dark chocolate and a touch of tobacco. The symmetry and focus in this wine is admirable. It should age better than the 2001. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2012)
