Viktor J. Mårups beskrivelse af flasken

Magnum flaske, Wine Spectator/Wine Enthusiast/Stephen Tanzer: 90

Color: Bright and deep red ruby with a purple robe.

Nose: Apalta's vineyard fruit expression as its best. Plums, cherries, blackberries and blackcurrant with sweet spices coming from elegant French oak aromas. Black spices from the Carmenere gives a unique and complex addition.

Mouth: Powerful and deep structure that surprises. Soft and chewy palate that evolve towards a long and pleasant finish with a very well achieved balance.

Food pairing: Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant before serving. Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.
