Tasting Notes/Food Pairing: A beautiful red and purple color with aromas of black cherries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and baker’s spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense, dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish. Don’t be concerned if you find yourself inhaling deeply from your glass, over and over—it is just your nose’s way of telling you that it wants its fair share! This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends. It goes great with everything from hamburgers and chicken to pizza and mild cheeses. An awesome value to boot. - Winery Oak Regimen: 12 months in 100% French oak barrels, 10% new, 90% 2nd use Alcohol: 13.5%

Bright full ruby. Aromas of dark fruits and bitter chocolate are complicated by smoky minerality and lifted by floral and spice notes. Fine-grained, generous and sweet; fuller-bodied than the Angel Paulucci offering but sound acidity gives it lovely life in the mouth. Finishes dense and long, with soft, even tannins and lingering notes of red and darker fruits. All of these new La Posta releases offer very good value. - Stephen Tanzer 90 Points** Only 1 in Stock **
