La Posta Tinto Red Blend 2014
|Region||Argentina, Uco Valley|
Aromas of red cherries and raspberries are infused with mocha and spice. Your first sip washes broadly across the palate like a flood of sweet, fresh fruit and the viscous mouthfeel keeps the flavors lingering. The hints of baking spice and some oak keep the fruit flavors fresh and lively. Unique recipe ideas include Ricotta Salata and Roasted Pepper Frittata, Pomegranate-Glazed Short Ribs, or Roast Chicken with Wild Rice and Cranberry Stuffing.
There are notes of white pepper to the dried berry and raspberry flavors in this red. The lightly spiced finish is clean and crisp. Drink now. 12,000 cases made.
Blanketed with heavy, minty, candied oak, this Malbec-led blend is meaty, sulfuric, pasty and gaseous on the nose. Plump, oaky and sticky on the palate, with vanilla and candied blueberry and black-plum flavors, this is more fat and oaky than structured and defined.
