La Posta Malbec Pizzella Family Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 91 Ripe and flashy, with a showy layer of mocha leading the way for spice cake, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors laid over a lush, creamy finish. Dense but lithe, with the fruit echoing through the finish. Wine Tasting Notes Beautiful red/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 overit 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. Goes great with everything from hamburgers and chicken to pizza and mild cheeses. An awesome value to boot.

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

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 medium-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends.
