Casa Lapostolle cuvee Alexandre Syrah Las Kuras vineyard 2008. Decided to post because of the price: $14.99; not bad.

POINT WHORE!! Big Grin


Whose points? Had never heard of this wine so did a Google search and couldn't find any reviews.


Google must have been broken Bruce. Razz WA 93 and IWC 92.

Mimik, no idea as I have not tried nor had I heard of this wine until the other day when I saw it on the SAQ website.

Not to mention 91.8 on cellar tracker Winner

What intrigued me was that is is a cab franc that allegedly has no bell pepper notes. Organically made, worth a try for 25.75$. For some reason dorval has a boatload of them. Will try one this weekend and report back!

Lol. Due to alleged trademark infringements, Robo Porker is temporarily on hiatus until the lawyers can work things out.

Dzitt, I am sick with a cold so let us know your TN if you try a bottle.

If you escape with only a cold consider yourself fortunate. I started with the flu 2 weeks ago and it morphed into a cold which I still have.

I am now also curious about this wine and I see what you mean about Dorval having a boatload of it. But it doesn't change the fact you are a point whore! Razz

What vintage and format? Go for the Yquem. You can always buy a better receiver for the same price in 6 months.
