About this winery

When Laura Catena decided to create a line of wines of her very own, she made a conscious decision to pay tribute to the traditional, small, family, growers and to a group of special vineyard sites in Mendoza, Argentina. The name La Posta refers to La Posta del Viñotero – ‘the Tavern of the Grape Grower’, found in every local village where farmers go to get their mail after a hard day in the vineyards. There, they meet to drink wine, laugh, and tell stories, agreeing to agree or disagree...

Notes about product

18 year old vines from the La Consulta vineyard in Uco Valley, Mendoza, at an elevation of 3600 ft.

Production notes

Grapes are hand-harvested. Wine is aged 10% in new French oak barrels for 10 months and 30% in 2nd use oak barrels.

Tasting notes

Aromas of black cherries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and baker’s spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish. A full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends.

Nice bitter-chocolate and smoky notes, as well as lots of forest berries, make this generous and well structured malbec a rather complex wine. But the supple tannins are already so well integrated that you can enjoy it right away.
