This is one of my favorite wines in the entire known world. It is an awesome wine, a stunning wine, and it compares well to any wine from any region in the world.
The Lapostolle is dry farmed in Chile on sixty year old vines. It is bone dry, earthy, and rich with black fruit and hints of dark chocolate. On the palate, it is liquid velvet~~This is no thin, watery, weak-sister Merlot, it is a substantial wine that could easily stand in for a well aged Cabernet or Bordeaux.
The wine drinks as if you forked over a Franklin, but you can pick up a 2009 for around twenty bucks, U.S.
I've had many wines costing four times as much that weren't as good. This is a wine that comes with regrets. You'll regret it when you've gotten to the dregs.
