A juicy and delicious second wine from Clos Apalta. Beautiful, ripe and delicious with dark berries and mushrooms. Full-bodied and very balanced with complex walnut, spice and berry character. Dark chocolate and hazelnuts at the finish.
The nose is elegant and nuanced, with herbs, spices and a core of ripe red and black fruit, quite varietal and with integrated oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with round tannins and vibrant acidity, making it long and supple.
Minerally and well-structured, with bright acidity backing the concentrated cherry and raspberry flavors. Dried green herbal notes and peppery hints show on the fresh finish.
...fresh and bordelais on the nose. Zesty and lively with a fine tannic backbone... No shortage of acidity. Lively.
