Our Costco is currently selling the Lapostolle Canto de Apalta Red Blend 2010
for $9.97 a bottle.
It’s a blend of:
Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah and it’s very well done. My favorite part of this wine is everything it’s not. It’s not jammy. It’s not grassy or bell pepper-y.
It does show layers of taste far above what I’d expect from a $10 bottle. I agree with the WE tasting notes from the above link: rich, muscular, berry, Cassis, cocoa with a hint of mint. Moderately strong tannins that smooth out with air.
