La Posta del Vinatero Cocina Malbec Mendoza 2010

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The 2010 Cocina Malbec was aged for 14 months in 20% new French and American oak and bottled without fining or filtration. Dark ruby red in color, this medium-bodied effort sports a nose of spice box, tobacco, violets, and black cherry. In the glass it opens to reveal a bit of structure, savory flavors, and a forward personality. Drink this solid value over the next 3-4 years. ** Only 1 in Stock **

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

Solid, with a good mix of black and red berries backed by enough acidity to carry the violet-tinged finish. Drink now. 6,500 cases imported. -NW
