Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Dense and flashy, displaying a toasty frame of fine tannins, with grilled herb and baking spice notes to the racy cassis, kirsch and plum skin flavors. Well-cut, with ample acidity and a minerally finish. Drink now through 2018. 2,800 cases made.
The welcoming blackberry and cassis aromas are friendly and approachable. The mouthfeel is lush, layered and grabby, with serious structure and dark, handsome flavors of black fruit, cassis, tobacco and black olive. Spicy and dry, it shows some mentholated warmth on the finish.
