2018 La Posta del Viñatero "Pizzella Vineyard" Malbec Mendoza

SKU #1511285 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Nice bitter-chocolate and smoky notes, as well as lots of forest berries, make this generous and well structured malbec a rather complex wine. But the supple tannins are already so well integrated that you can enjoy it right away. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark My favorite of the Malbecs in 2018 is the 2018 Pizzella Malbec, which is aromatic, floral, varietal and harmonious. It's clean and juicy, with almost unnoticeable tannins and a velvety texture. 360,000 bottles produced. (LG) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Pure, dark aromas of blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate and minerals lifted by a lavender note. Pliant and seamless, offering a restrained sweetness to its dark berry, cherry and chocolate flavors. Mouthfilling without coming across as weighty, this Malbec finishes supple and broad, with refined tannins. These vines are now 17 years old and getting into their prime. (Incidentally, this wine was aged in 40% new French oak, vs. 10% for the Paulucci and no new oak for La Posta's other reds.) (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

This is such a wonderfully crushable red wine! The nose is vibrant but not huge with dark plum and blackberry, milled spices and purple blossoms. The palate is medium bodied with bright black fruits and spice translating to the palate without the tannic heft of some Malbec. This is the perfect every day drinker and deserves to be purchased by the case!

Blackberry-juice-that-collects-on-your-fingers-as-you-pick-ripe-berrys-in-a-mountain-clearing kind of vibes. Spicy white cedar, smoke and sandlewood cruise along the edge of that fun middle, giving the wine a slightly more serious tone, but not enough to stop this being an open and drink with everything option. Really good every year.
