Tasting Notes

Intense, complex nose full of different aromas: white pepper and red fruit at the start, then prunes and black cherries with some hints of sweet spices. Juicy on the palate, with soft structure and balance; fresh fruit flavors on the finish.

The Rapel Valley is one of the few places with ideal conditions for Carmenère Grape. The grapes for this vintage are partly from Lapostolle’s own Apalta vineyard and partly from long-term contract growers in the region. All grapes were harvested by hand
