La Posta Malbec Pizzella Family Vineyard 2008
Beautiful in the glass--more red than purple. Woody, viny aroma. Very lean in the mouth. Satisfying wine, but difficult to characterize flavors. More flavor in the back of the palate (spicy) than the front. I was concerned that this wine would not match as well with food as I had hope, but with my meal berry flavors do emerge. It stood up well to my grilled steak. $12.99 at Costco a couple weeks ago.
Mostly dark friuts, acid was a bit unbalanced; maybe will mellow some with age.
Tremendous blueberry. Most of the Malbecs i have had lately have been overhyped crap Not this one. 91 pts
