Currently in my glass

I'm finishing off a bottle of "Casa Lapostolle" 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Raphael Valley, Chile which was given to us by some friends. While I admit that part of this wine's appeal to me is the name (I said to my bride "Honey, I'm going postal!") as I pulled the bottle out of the cabinet, it has a lot of structure and fruit. It may in fact be too tannic for some folks. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it contains some cabernet franc, although the label makes no mention of it. All in all, perfectly decent if you like a full-bodied red, and while mine was *ahem* free, Chilean wines are always good values.
