2002 Casa Lapostolle Clos Apalta
"Beautiful color, with vivid boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors that easily handle the layers of vanilla-tinged toast. Roasted herb, brier and black currant notes run through the finish, which shows the firm edge of the vintage, but a superb effort nonetheless. Carmenere, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2009. 3,150 cases made."
