2018 Lapostolle ‘Cuvée Alexander’ Cabernet Sauvignon
James Suckling 95: The blackcurrants and violets are impressive on the nose with hints of slate. Full-bodied, yet always refined and in check. Linear and tight. Black olives and blue fruit at the finish. Drink after 2021.
Vinous 90: Macerated for 30 days after fermentation, this Cabernet Sauvignon from Apalta, Colchagua, really turns up the volume. On the nose it presents red fruits, cherries and cassis over an expressive bed of spices, where white pepper comes to the fore. It enters the mouth with a lush flourish in which the tannins soon take over, backed up by 14 months in new and used barrels. It’ll be a little while before they’re truly polished.
