La Posta invites you to Mendoza, the land of sun and wine, to gather at la posta del viñatero – the tavern of the grape grower. There you’ll meet the growers of some of the finest grapes in the world and hear stories before an invitation takes us back to one of their homes. In the kitchen, the stories will continue for hours. Laughter will fill the air. And you will leave richer than when you arrived.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of red cherries and raspberries are infused with mocha and spice hints that give up the secret for what’s about to come. Your first sip washes broadly across your palate like a food of sweet, fresh fruit and a vibrant and long finish. The hints of baking spice and some oak keep the fruit flavors fresh and lively.

This is a wine that you’ll want to stack up in your wine rack (or closet) for any occasion. Great all by itself or with all your favorite red wine foods like burgers, ribs, lamb chops, and even pizza.
