The 2015 Clos Apalta received a perfect 100 point rating from James Suckling. It delivers mouthwatering flavors of blackberry, currant, dark plum, shiitake mushroom, vanilla bean with dark chocolate and cardamom notes emerging midpalate. It's powerful, full-bodied, with plenty of dusty tannins. and a strong mineral core. Incredible character here with such purity and polish. A definite match for grilled meats and roasts.
