     I really like a good Malbec and that is why I was pleased with La Posta Malbec Paulucci Mendoza 2008.  First I noticed the opaque purple color, then the firm structure that balanced the lush core of succulent fruits like blueberry, fig, raspberry and black cherry.  The finish was spice tinged with a feel of slightly dry tannins.  Another thing that I really liked was that this wine spent 12 months aging in 20% new french oak barrels.  Final facts IWC/89,  WS/88,  WA/88,  $16.99 with PA L.C.B. product code 16970.

    1. I agree with your wife that a good Malbec is hard to beat, especially when it is paired with the smokey flavor of grilled beef this time of year. Cheers and Thanks for your feedback.
