La Posta Cocina Blend Mendoza 2008

La Posta Cocina Blend Mendoza 2008Just snagged a case of the La Posta Vineyards Cocina Blend Mendoza Argentina 2008 from the Pennsylvania Wine and Spirits online store.

“‘The 2008 Cocina Blend composed of 60% Malbec, 20% Bonarda, and 20% Syrah aged for 12 months in 20% new French and American oak before bottling without fining and filtration (as are all of these red wines). Purple-colored, it has an enticing bouquet of cinnamon, Dentyne gum, cigar box, violets, black cherry, and blueberry. Medium-bodied, round and sweetly-fruited on the palate, it has plenty of savory spice notes, enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years, and a lengthy, pure finish. Drink it from 2010 to 2016.”
