The Lapostolle Canta de Apalta Red 2013 is a sumptuous red wine, with loads of fruit and savory flavors. A vibrant ruby red in the glass, the nose shows lush aromas of sweetly spiced cranberries and black pepper. Notes of chocolate and tobacco add excellent depth. The palate is artfully balanced, with nicely integrated tannins and a lingering finish. Hints of coffee and baker’s chocolate mingle with a cascade of red fruit flavor.
Enjoy this red wine with roasted pork loin or grilled red meats. It is a versatile table wine.
