La Posta Bonarda 2010

Member Review by Argovino:

Many bonardas have an attractive sweetness but are a little rough around the edges, and this one is no different. There’s a glimpse of cinnamon just as it touches the tongue, and the tannic edge makes a nice contrast for the fattiness of cured meats. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=857)

Angel Paulucci's family has produced wine in Italy since the early 1800's, and Angel arrived in Mendoza with his parents in 1953 at the age of 21. In 1960, he planted his first Malbec vineyard, and in 1970 he planted a special block of Malbec vines in Ugarteche at the southern limit of the Lujan de Cuyo department. If you get Angel talking, plan to stay awhile—he will regale you with childhood stories of enemy soldiers firing bullets into his family's red wine barrels so that they could quench their thirst. And of course, he will tell you about his vineyard: very tight spacing, superficial irrigation, lime-laden soils, and Malbec grapes that make an old-timer smile. Read less

great fruit. great acidity. at $18 not the best qpr but we bought it to bring to a byob pizza place in Williamsburg called Motorino so $18 is a bargain in that situation.

La Posta 06 Bonarda - Mendoza, ArgentinaTasting Notes/Food Pairing SuggestionsIntense ruby color with bright aromas of fresh red & black raspberries and subtle smoky oak notes. The flavor of freshly-crushed raspberries is echoed on the palate, along with notes of white pepper, dark chocolate, and a touch sandalwood and mint on the finish. Though quite rich and hedonistic, the seamless structure of this wine makes it a candidate for drinking in its youth or over the next few years (if you can wait that long). It will pair well with just about any foods you would drink Zinfandel or other fruit-driven reds with.88 Points - Wine Spectator: "Showy, with lots of blackberry, plum and fig fruit caressed by sweet mocha and mesquite hints. The long, fleshy finish will have a lot of fans."89 Points - Wine Advocate: "Deep crimson-colored, the wine is fruity and fragrant with notes of cedar, spice box, red and black raspberries. Medium-bodied, on the palate notes of pepper, chocolate, and mint emerge. Ripe and tasty with gobs of flavor, this hedonistic and well-priced effort can be enjoyed over the next 5 years."
