La Posta Cocina Tinto 2018
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Alto Vale de Uco|
The red blend 2018 Tinto (which means "red in Spanish) is 60% Malbec and 20% each Bonarda and Cabernet Franc, a harmonious and complex blend that is fruit-driven, clean, balanced and very easy to drink, which is the signature from la Posta, especially in the 2018 vintage. Delicious and easy.
Deep ruby-red. Expressive aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and violet. At once pliant and penetrating, showing good juicy precision and floral lift to its moderately dense, dry dark berry flavors. Finishes with firm but harmonious tannins, repeating floral lift and a hint of meaty Syrah.
Candied fruit and woody aromas are hefty and domineering rather than natural. Following suit, this Malbec blend feels thick and sappy, not free flowing. Candied, oaky flavors of red-berry fruits show heat on a grapey finish.
