Winemaker's Notes

"This blends malbec (60%) with bondara and syrah. It's all black fruit and violets, but there is a solid tannic structure and a fresh acidity to balance the ripeness. Decant it for ribs."
-Wines & Spirits

"The 2006 Cocina Blend, 60% Malbec, 20% Bonarda, and 20% Syrah, was sourced from three regions of Mendoza, and aged for 10 months in 70% French and 30% American oak, 20% new. Purple-colored, it offers notes of cedar, spice box, pencil lead, blueberry, and black cherry. On the palate, gamy notes emerge to accompany the sweet fruit. Easy-drinking and seamless, this tasty wine can be enjoyed over the next 5 years. All four La Posta wines are outstanding values."
-Wine Advocate

The blend impresses you right from the start. Aromas of red cherries and raspberries are infused with mocha and spice hints that give up the secret about what's to come. Your first sip washes braodly across your palate like a flood of sweet, fresh fruit and the viscous mouthfeel keeps the flavors lingering for awhile. The hints of baking spice and some oak keep the flavors fresh and lively. This is a wine that you'll wnat to stanck up in your wine rack (or closet) for any occasion. Great all by itself or with all of your favorite red wine foods.

A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...
