Wine Advocate-Parker :
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, let's hope the animal character does not develop too much in bottle. Drink 2016-2025.
