LaPosta Tinto red blend 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • LaPosta translates to "the tavern" where the farmers meet to discuss their soils, their vines, their quest for superior flavors. Cheers to Laura Catena and winemaker Estela Perinetti who produce this line in collaboration with Argentina's best small-family growers. The grapes for Tinto were grown at an average 3,000 foot elevation on vines 30 years old.
  • LaPosta Tinto red blend 2014 is very cherry on the nose, with soft warm spice and chocolate overlaying the jammy cherry berry flavors on the tongue. The finish is softly tannic and acidic. This is a delicious blend of 60% Malbec, 20% Syrah and 20% Bonarda (widely grown in Argentina but uncommon elsewhere). 13.5% ABV. Screw cap. Local price/750 ml: 10. (included in Woodland Wine Merchant 6/60 deal, 2/9/17.)
