LA POSTA LA POSTA - Malbec Pizzella - 2015

LA POSTA Malbec Pizzella 2015

See the wine detail page

92 Points

Opulent, generous, energetic. 
The La Posta wines are selections of Laura Catena of Mendoza's famed Bodega Catena Zapata. The new labels on these wines are nothing less than spectacular. 
A generous style of Malbec, as showy as its label, it offers plush vanilla, licorice, allspice, violets, mocha and pipe tobacco, vividly underscored by juicy black raspberries. It is punchy and unapologetic on the palate as well; supple weight, generosity of fruit and warm brown spices mimic the nose. Overall, an opulent, concentrated and energetic style.

Pair: BBQ, meat, portobello burgers, chili-dogs and hard cheeses.

About Wine Scores

What is a wine score and how do wine reviewers (I don’t refer to myself as a wine critic, I review wine, I don't criticize it) decide on that score?
A wine score is a numerical rating wine reviewers give to a wine based on a series of elements. Every wine reviewer (or wine critic) has their own method of getting to a conclusive number even if they use similar guidelines to one another.
