Bottle size: 750 ml

Sweetness: Dry

Wine Type: Red Wine

Winery: La Posta

Natalie's Score: 89/100

Winemakers Paula and Pablo Pizzella grow the grapes in Altamira, Mendoza. This dark, meaty and full-bodied Argentine wine sources its Malbec grapes from local growers, the Pizzella Family Vineyard (Ed Lehrman and Nick Ramkowsky). Lots of chocolate, espresso, coffee and mocha from oak aging. This La Posta is more robust than the winery's Angel Paulucci red wine. Pair with Mexican mole.

Malbec food pairings: lamb cutlets, beef tenderloin, prime rib.

This elegant Mendoza Malbec shows smooth plum, dark chocolate and espresso notes in a soft, balanced mouthfeel. Great value. Pair with beef bourguinon and hearty lamb stews.

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.

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.
