Buy Lapostolle Merlot Cuvee Alexandre Apalta Vineyard
Wine Advocate 88 points - The Cuvee Alexandre series are single vineyard selections named after proprietor Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle. The 2005 Merlot “Cuvee Alexandre - Apalta Vineyard”” has 15% Carmenere in the blend. Purple-colored, it has an attractive nose of black currant, blueberry, vanilla, and clove. The wine has good weight on the palate with layers of black fruits and a firm structure. The finish is a bit tannic and should round out with 1-2 years of further bottle age.  (Jun 2007)

Wine Spectator 88 points - Offers a solid mix of herb, ripe plum and cocoa flavors, with a firm toasty edge to the finish and a lingering vanilla hint. Drink now through 2008. 18,000 cases made. –JM (Jul 31 2007)
