Clean burgundy color with cherry hues. Expressive nose of red and black fruit such as blackberry along with fresh aromas such as thyme and black pepper. Medium body with a good fruit expression. Good balance among components.
The ideal companion for pastas with red sauces, or paprika stuffed with quinoa and tomatoes, or a pizza with mushrooms and pepperoni.
Blend: 86% Merlot, 12% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot

About Casa Lapostolle Winery
Lapostolle Wines was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. Alexandra is a member of the renowned family that has been dedicated for several generations to the production of high-quality spirits and wines.
After visiting Chile, Alexandra and Cyril not only fell in love with the Colchagua Valley, they also detected the enormous potential of the country to produce premium wines due to its exceptional geographical characteristics.
In the creation of Lapostolle Wines, the family has maintained the same absolute commitment with the quality that has always characterized them. Its aim is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world class wines using the French experience and the magnificent terroirs of Chile.
Under the dedicated vision of Alexandra and Cyril, Lapostolle Wines has been a pioneer in the wine industry in Chile and today its wines continue to elevate the region through the production of premium wines, with a strong emphasis on sustainability.
Today, Lapostolle Wines is recognized throughout the world for its quality and its extraordinary ability to express the Chilean terroir. The company owns 370 hectares in three different vineyards (Casablanca, Cachapoal and Colchagua) and produces a total of 200,000 cases annually. The wines are distributed in more than 60 countries worldwide.
