2015 Casa Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon

Prim and proper on this thirsty Thursday. This Chilean wine is certified carbon neutral – so that’s kinda neat. Cassis, black currants, blackberries, and a mix of sweet dark fruit on the nose along with violets, mint, and cedar notes. Similar on the palate with cedar, vanilla, and fennel. Took a while to open but then was great! Give it about 30 minutes after open to fully enjoy!
