When Laura Catena decided to create a line of wines of her very own, she made a conscious decision to pay tribute to the traditional, small, family, growers and to a group of special vineyard sites in Mendoza, Argentina. The name La Posta refers to La Posta del Viñotero – ‘the Tavern of the Grape Grower’, found in every local village where farmers go to get their mail after a hard day in the vineyards. There, they meet to drink wine, laugh, and tell stories, agreeing to agree or disagree...
Vibrant red color with aromas of red cherries, raspberries, ripe plums and violets wafting from the glass along with notes of toasty oak. On the palate, the fresh berry flavors mingle with spice notes and there is a hint of soft caramel on the finish. This is a creamy, medium-bodied and well- structured wine that is incredibly full of life.
100% Malbec. Vineyards are at an average elevation of 1,050 feet and are located in Ugarteche - Lujan de Cuyo. The average age of these vines is 41 years old.

Sweet fruit with the oak nestled nicely in the background. Acidity is there, offering up a welcome counter balance the ripe fruit. Finish is tannic, but there is some good length here as well...See detailed press review
