Wine Enthusiast calls Chile’s Colchagua Valley “the new Napa Valley,” and this exclusive Cabernet will show you why. It’s a delicious testament to the potential of Chilean Cab and the quality coming out of the iconic Casa Lapostolle estate …
Founded in 1994 by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle (the woman behind famous liqueur brand Grand Marnier), Casa Lapostolle quickly rose to prominence in Chile and the rest of the world. Its flagship red, Clos Apalta, sells for $80+ a bottle and was named the No. 1 Wine of the Year in Wine Spectator’s prestigious Top 100. They put the same care and quality-obsession into their entire range, including this elegant Cabernet (which you’ll enjoy at a far friendlier price).
Casona Cordillera is crafted with hand-selected Cabernet Sauvignon, plus splashes of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot for extra depth. The grapes all grow in the estate’s prized Apalta vineyard, which is “producing sensational wines,” raves Master of Wine Jancis Robinson. It boasts layers of rich black fruit and, thanks to time in fine French oak barrels, notes of toasty spice and velvety-smooth tannins. A tasty match for beef empanadas, hearty stews and more.
