La Posta Bonarda Estela Armando Vineyard 2007

Member Review by dwe:

This is a fairly delicious wine for my palate. This is a new producer in my wine store - italian family using old italian grape in Argentina! Nice dark fruit with background oak on nose. The palate is, for me, a very balanced and refreshing mix of acid/tanin/fruit and distant vanilla and oak. Medium bodied and finish that transistions to a lighter fruit/jammy note. It has a jam like quality without being to fruity...I really enjoyed this, and reminded me that cutting the full fruit forward quality with the right mix of tannin/acid/oak can elevate things to a different level...I let this sit in big glass for 30 mins. Nice solo and match with a variety of food.

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
