Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Sponsor

This wine is produced from the estate of Lapostolle, with vineyards situated in the Apalta Valley within the Colchagua Valley in Chile. The cuvée is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Carménère.  The wine is aged for 14 months in French oak.  The label states, “French in essence, Chilean by birth.”  And I think it’s a perfect wine to welcome autumn.

Nose: Floral, black fruit, currents, baking spice, and earthy.
Palate:  Cherry, dried plums, toasty notes, silky tannins, good acidity with dark chocolate, spice, and a hint of rose petals lingering on a long finish. 
Alcohol: 14.5%
SRP: $25
Pairing suggestions: Grilled meat, game, portobello burgers, hearty stews, and pasta.
