Chile offers some of the best values in Cabernet Sauvignon, its sunny slopes attracting plenty of French producers. The world-renowned Michel Rolland has been consulting with Domaines Bournet-Lapostolle since the beginning, helping to fully capture the unique terroir of Apalta in the family’s style. This very pretty, expressive cab pulls in 9% Carmenere, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot to build this firm, silky red.
Very pretty currant, blackberry and floral aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a chewy finish. Give it two or three years to soften.
