  • About this winery

    When Laura Catena decided to create a line of wines of her very own, she made a conscious decision to pay tribute to the traditional, small, family, growers and to a group of special vineyard sites in Mendoza, Argentina. The name La Posta refers to La Posta del Viñotero – ‘the Tavern of the Grape Grower’, found in every local village where farmers go to get their mail after a hard day in the vineyards. There, they meet to drink wine, laugh, and tell stories, agreeing to agree or disagree...

  • Tasting notes

    Aromas of red cherries and raspberries infused with mocha and spice. Hints of baking spice and some oak keep the fruit flavors fresh and lively, while the viscous mouthfeel keeps the flavors lingering. Pair with short ribs or roast chicken.

  • Viticultural notes

    Grapes are sourced from the La Consulta region in the Uco Valley. 60% of the blend is aged for 9 months in 2nd and 3rd use barrels, 60% in French and 40% in American oak.

    April 2018

    So much pressed-violet character, spice box, licorice, brambleberries and citrus undertones. Very juicy on the palate with lots of soft, succulent tannins, driven acidity and only an ever so slightly chewy finish. So pure and drinkable. Malbec, bonarda and syrah blend.
