The 2016 Clos Apalta is a drop-dead stunning release one of the most impressive yet from this famed Chilean Estate. Composed of 64% Carménère, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot this immediately opens to seductive aromas of ripe blackberries and cassis which are layered with violets, bell pepper, tobacco, pepper and spices that all emerge from the glass. The palate is full-bodied and well-structured with polished tannins and gorgeous velvety texture that makes it nearly impossible to resist. It goes on to display remarkable overall balance and concentration, with wonderful opulence and a graceful finish that beautifully ties it all together. This is nothing short of outstanding in its youth and should go on to age effortlessly for two decades. Clos Apalta still remains one of the finest values in the world given its superior level of quality and pedigree.
