La Posta Malbec Blend 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

La Posta 06 Cocina Blend 90 Points - Wine Spectator "Top Argentine Value Brand of the Year" 60% Malbec, 20% Syrah, 20% Bonardo Aromas of red cherries and raspberries are infused with mocha and spice hints that give up the secret for what's about to come. Your first sip washes broadly across your palate like a flood of sweet, fresh fruit and the viscous mouthfeel keeps the flavors lingering for a while.

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.

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

Great value, perfect wine to grab a case of for under $100. Nothing to complain about and guaranteed to go up in price over the next couple of years.

Bright and lively though still refined; big ripe red berries in aroma, fruit on the attack, some notes of spice and dried fruit midpalate, decent finish.

Love this wine, great taste, smooth but has a little bite at the end. Great blend. Every day drinker.

Awesome vino.  This has everything you could want--well, unless your looking for a big fruit bomb.  Herbaceous was the best descriptor I could come up with for the nose.  When I first started drinking this wine I couldn't quite put my finger on what was going on.  I kept thinking of some sort of raw vegetable right out of the ground like a potato or an.....onion!  It was an onion.  Think somewhere between french onion soup and cool ranch dorritos!  This wine also had some great minerality and sea salt.  It will bring you on a trip to Argentina and get you right into the nitty gritty of the terroir.  Please try this wine tonight.

Nice berry, especially blueberry and some cherry. Nice tannins. Can only get better with age. Yum!

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.

The 2006 Malbec "Paulucci Vineyard" was aged for 10 months in 100% French oak, 20% new. Purple-colored, it offers a lovely bouquet of violets, smoke, black cherry, and blackberry. Medium-bodied and elegant, it has excellent depth, a smooth texture, and excellent balance. It will evolve for 2-3 years but can be enjoyed now.
