‘Raise your glass’ to Estela Armando and her grandfather’s half-century old Bonarda vineyard. This wine is fresh with notes of red raspberry and smoky oak.
Intense ruby color with bright aromas of fresh red & black raspberries and subtle smoky oak notes. The flavor of freshly-crushed raspberries is echoed on the palate, along with notes of leather, dark chocolate, and a touch sandalwood on the finish. Though quite rich and hedonistic, the seamless structure of this wine makes it a candidate for drinking in its youth or over the next few years (if you can wait that long).
It will pair well with just about any foods with which you would drink Zinfandel or other fruit-driven reds.
Harvested from Guaymallén (East Mendoza), from vineyards planted in soils of shallow loamy clay and gravel subsoil.
50% of the wine is aged for 10 months in 2nd & 3rd use French oak, 50% is aged in stainless steel.
Estela Armando's family has been growing grapes in Mendoza since 1887. The combination of a unique place, old vines and very little irrigation leads to the high quality grapes used in La Posta Bonarda.
