    La Posta Red Blend 2014

    “Red fruits and coffee dominate the nose on this Malbec/Syrah/Bonarda blend from Argentina; raspberry and cocoa flavors permeate on the palate. Because this is a bit lighter bodied than the 100% Malbec it’s a lot more versatile in pairing with food. Grilled meats will always work, but try it with grilled or baked fowl as […]
