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

It’s love at first sip with this classic Mendoza Malbec! Intense aromas of red rose petals and red berry fruits fill the nose. Enjoy violet, berry, and mocha flavors on the palate with just a hint of blueberry. As these flavors evolve
you’ll be treated to a hint of chocolate on the finish. Superb to drink on its own, but perfect with steaks on the grill
or even pizza and pasta. Don’t miss this one, though, with your dark chocolate dessert!
