Balanced with fleshy purple plums, smoke and a dry, chalky finish. Lots of layers of enjoyment here with a medium- to full-bodied weight. Ripe blackberry jam aromas on a long finish. No new oak. Produced by fourth generation winemaker Laura Catena.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Created by 4th generation vintner, Laura Catena. Dark ruby fragrant with ripe blackberries and sweet spice, then blackberries, mocha, vanilla and sweet spice touches. Satiny, smooth texture . Enjoy with roast beef.

La Posta Estelo Armando (2015) is an Argentinean Bonarda red wine from the Mendoza wine region. Structured and balanced with ripe dark plums, ripe black fruity and a zesty acidity, this wine is smoky with lots of texture and finishes lightly lingering with anise. Drink now to 2020. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
