Casa Lapostolle "Cuvée Alexandre - Apalta Vineyard" (Chile) 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon,
$14.44-$18.95, 90 points, is a deep magenta color, with a beautiful aroma of blackberries, tobacco, and cinnamon, and the flavor is a quaff-able medium body of tart cherry, plum, and spice; this is a delicious wine, packed with a firm tannin presence on a moderate finish.
The 14.1% alcohol is well balanced with fruit, tannin, and acidity. Unless you are looking for it, the alcohol is unnoticeable.
The grapes were sourced from sixty year old non-irrigated vines (For the viticulturist in you).
Casa Lapostolle paired nicely with a loaded cheese steak grinder.
At $14.44, this bottle of wine would grace your table with class and would grace the palates of family/friends with your class.
