La Posta Pizzella Malbec 2017
Product DescriptionLa Posta Pizzella Malbec 2017
"Welcome to the Uco Valley of Mendoza Argentina and the La Consulta Vineyard sitting at an elevation of 3600 ft.
Rising from its deep purple/red color are aromas of ripe dark fruit such as black cherry, ripe plum, dark chocolate and floral notes of slightly decaying violets and baking spices. Aging in 10% new French oak barrels for 10 months and 30% in 2nd use barrels give this Malbec its silky soft tannin, subtle woodsy spice and dark tobacco notes.
Pizzella Malbec delivers rich dark fruit flavors balanced by vibrant wet earth along with a bright lingering finish that will leave your palate feeling both exhilarated and refreshed as only a fine cool climate Malbec can do. Don't cry for me Argentina because Pizzella Malbec can only make you smile."
