"The aromas in this wine are phenomenal with slate, blackberry, blue granite and lead pencil. Violet too. Full body, with seamless tannins and dense and reserved structure. It needs about three or four years to soften. 100% new wood and aged 26 months. From 71% carmenere, 15% cabernet sauvignon, and 11% merlot. From biodynamically grown grapes." (06/14)

"Moving back to the more classical line, the 2010 Clos Apalta comes from a cold spring which resulted in a late harvest. The year that was definitively marked by a strong earthquake in Chile (February 27, just before the harvest). The wine is the result of the selection of the best lots after fermenting 200,000 kilograms of hand-destemmed grapes in the state of the art winery, where everything is moved by gravity. The base is always two thirds Carmenere complemented by Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, whose proportions might vary with each vintage. It has some leather aromas along with notes of licorice, tempera paint and Chinese ink, scents of black and red fruit underneath a thick layer of spices and smoke aromas. The palate is full-bodied, with good freshness and a patina of grainy, chalky tannins that give it a little drying sensation. One for the long run, letâs hope the animal character does not develop too much in bottle. Drink 2016-2025. -LG" (06/14)
"Color: Dark and deep inky purple red color.
Nose: Still young, but opening towards ripe and expressive red and black fruit, such as plums, red cherries, dry figs and blueberries. Spices such as vanilla, clover and white pepper.
Palate: With a concentrated structure, this wine has a round and packed attack followed by velvety and polished tannins filling the mid palate and a ripe and rich long lasting finish." -Winery
"Our winemaking philosophy is to reflect the terroir from Apalta by crafting a wine based in Carmenere. A truly hand crafted wine, we nurture our vines and attend to every detail to preserve the potential of the grapes. We hand harvest the fruit in small 14 kilos cases. The grapes were 100% hand de-stemmed in our Clos Apalta Winery so we maintain complete control of the quality. We fill our French oak vats by gravity. Then nature did its work, allowing native yeasts that slowly ferment the must into wine with temperature control less than 28Â° C. Macerations lasted for about 4-5 weeks and during all that period we did manual punch downs to extract enough compounds from skins and seeds to get the desired structure and concentration. We rack the young new wine straight into 100% new French oak barrels by gravity. Malolactic fermentation happens in barrels, where the wine stays for 24 months, ageing patiently. The wine is bottled by gravity without any treatment or filtration." -Winery
