Reviews and Ratings

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

Delicious ripe raspberry nose leads to a smooth, luscious palate giving raspberry jam, smoky oak, dark chocolate and hint of sandalwood on finish. Great wine for your favourite beef dishes.
Excellent value.

L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Luscious deep purple wine, medium bodied, dry and balanced. Wonderful aromas of chocolate, smoke, plum, dark cherry, baking spice, vanilla with a savory and meaty note.Flavours of dark plum, cherry, chocolate and smoke. This fruit forward wine has a medium long finish of dark plum. A very versatile and food friendly wine that is pleasant to sip on its own.
La Posta Estelo Armando 2017 is an Argentinean Bonarda red wine from the Mendoza wine region and great value under $20 and produced by Laura Cantena. Intense ruby in the glass with ripe red, black raspberries, dark plums, chocolate and subtle smoky oak notes. Enjoy now with a chicken mole.
