From the bottle:
“We have tasted thousands of wines since we began importing from Argentina and have found a handful of grape growers whose vineyards have been truly amazing year in, year out. Our first encounter with many of these growers was at a posta, or “tavern”, where they drank wine and spoke passionately for hours about their soils, their vines, and their quest for superior flavors in their grapes. We salute the hard work and skill of Angel Paulucci by offering this vineyard-designated release made with his special Malbec grapes.
The 2009 La Posta Del Vinatero Angel Paulucci Vineyard Malbec begins with a very nice aroma of riple plum, blackberry and a little pepper plus lavender and violet floral notes. The wine tastes excellent with savory and juicy fruit along with smooth spice wrapped up in a silky texture. The primary flavors in this medium-bodied wine are blackberry, black cherry and plum. The spice continues on the dry finish and lingers for a long time, resolving into vanilla and caramel notes at the very end. Highly recommended!
