Available for:
Deep and inky purple red robe with dark blue edges. The nose is intense, spicy overlapping with layers of red and black fruit, and cedar notes. Elegant tannins open towards a mid-palate that combines finesse and concentration, round and fresh. Exceptionally long finish.

The 2018 Clos Apalta is 64% Carménère, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot from Apalta, Colchagua, aged for 24 months in 85% new barrels. The ripe, complex, clear nose o!ers prune, blueberries and blackberries along with pepper, tobacco, rosemary, cigar box and a whi! of smoke. Creamy and broad in the mouth with good volume, a firm flow and contained structure. The tannins set the tone while the mellow freshness underlines the sugary profile. A genuine Michel Rolland wine made during a year of subtle flavors.

Aromas of chalk and ripe black fruit are subtle and delicate. Well structured and balanced, this red delivers nutmeg, dried herbs and meaty plum over a mineral texture. Firm tannins and good acidity provide support to the savory mouthfeel. Oak flavors add to the complexity and extend the finish.
