Lapostolle la Parcelle 8 Vieilles Vignes 2015
|Region||Chile, Colchagua, Apalta Valley|
Beautiful deep red ruby color. Nose is elegant and complex, opening towards intense fruit with herbs & spices. Palate has classic structure with elegant tannins, flavors of fruit and black spices, and a long-lasting, velvety finish. Pairs well with red meats such as roasted lamb and braised short ribs, or complements mushrooms or a cheese plate.
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon La Parcelle 8 comes from Apalta, Colchagua, and was made from vines first planted in 1915. Aged for 26 months in new French barrels, it is garnet red in color with delicious, intense aromas of black currant and mint alongside hints of thyme and laurel plus a whiff of date. Concentrated with a refined expression, the palate is energized by the alcohol, which is channeled by the wood into a velvety texture. Well-made in a classical style, it has begun to develop a bouquet.
