    Casa Lapostolle is most famous for their Clos Apalta, a wine which has been selected #1 wine of the year in Wine Spectator and is a rich, dark fruited collectible that sells for over $100 per bottle. While this varietal Cabernet is not the same Cab that goes into that blend, it is from the same neck of the woods, on the Apalta Vineyard, in Chile's Colchagua Valley. Spicy cherry confiture, sweet oak spices and dark chocolate aromas are all well balanced. Given the cooler vintage, the palate profile is nicely ripe, with a stylish, , spicy profile, well framed by the tannins. For a few bucks under $20, this is an impeccably well produced Cabernet that deservedly has a number of loyal fans.
