ESTELA ARMANDO
Stephen Tanzer 2018- Vinous - La Posta Armando Bonarda 2017 - 90 Points Dark red-ruby. Inviting high-pitched aromas of blackberry, dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and violet. Densely packed, fine-grained and sweet; a fresh, firm fruit bomb of a Bonarda with just a bit of the variety's leathery funk leavened by a violet
2017 La Posta Estela Armando Bonarda review by James Suckling - 91 Points Wine Score: 91 Points: Citrus and orange peel, blackberries, tar, vanilla, resin and lot of bark. Full, fruity and chewy on the palate with soft tannins and a fruity finish.
2016 La Posta Armando Bonarda review by James Suckling - 91 Points Wine Score: 91 Points: A dense and rich wine with plenty of berry, walnut and light chocolate character. Full body, lovely fruit and a flavorful finish. This is bonarda.
2015 La Posta Armando Bonarda review by James Suckling - 90 Points Wine Score: 90 Points: A tight and lightly dusty red with licorice and blackberries. Medium to light body. A fun wine from Argentina that everyone should try.
2014 La Posta Armando Bonarda from Canadian journalist, Sara D’Amato at WineAlign Wine Score: 88 Review: La Posta consistently offers a great price-to-quality ratio and this bonarda is no exeption. The palate is savory and offers notes of black pepper in league with oaky spice complimenting the plentiful fruit. Lush and very typic

2008 Bonarda Estela Armando Vineyard 89 Points, Wine Spectator (Dec 2008)
Rounded, toasty and very flattering, with mocha and roasted vanilla leading the way for hints of maple-cured bacon, crushed plum and melted licorice. The finish is long and fleshy. Drink now. 1,100 cases made
2008 Bonarda Estela Armando Vineyard 89 Points, Wine Advocate, Robert Parker Jr (Aug 2009) Issue WA, #184
Is opaque purple-colored. Plums, blueberry, and floral notes lead to a sweetly-fruited, ripe, savory, easy-to-understand wine with no hard edges
2007 Bonarda Estela Armando Vineyard 89 Points, Wine Spectator (Oct 31st 2008)
A flashy style for Bonarda, delivering lots of mocha and fruitcake up front, followed by notes of plum sauce and licorice. There's nice weight on the finish
