Casa Lapostolle: "French in essence, Chilean by birth."
No stranger to the world of wine and spirits, Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle of Grand Marnier fame expanded her family's business when she and her husband founded Casa Lapostolle Winery in Chile. Expecting nothing less than the quality Cognac the family is grandly known for, Casa Lapostolle crafts world-class wines using French techniques.
Their motto holds true with their 2013 Red Blend that delivers old-world character in a new world wine. The first vintage of this fine blend, it's a knockout wine all around.
Attractive aromas of cranberries, sweet spice, and hints of tobacco lead into a balanced wine with notes of red and black fruit on the palate followed by savory chocolate and coffee notes in the aftertaste. We love how this blend allows each varietal to shine on its own while never overpowering the others. Lapostolle delivers a seamless blend that offers the bright nose of Syrah, spice of Carmenere, plush red fruit of Merlot, and structure of Cabernet at an everyday price! This is a wine you don't want to miss out on trying!
