La Posta Armando Bonarda
Behold, the unsung hero of Argentina. Malbec gets all the hype, but Bonarda is a refreshing rockstar. Chill this bottle slightly and sip happily.
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).
