2006 La Posta Bonarda 89pts. around $17 - just ask your favorite Texas wine shop for it!
WA Tasting Notes: The 2006 Bonarda was sourced from the 44 year old Estela Armando Vineyard, and was aged for 10 months in 70% French and 30% American oak, 20% new. Deep crimson-colored, the wine is fruity and fragrant with notes of cedar, spice box, red and black raspberries. Medium-bodied, on the palate notes of pepper, chocolate, and mint emerge. Ripe and tasty with gobs of flavor, this hedonistic and well-priced effort can be enjoyed over the next 5 years. All four of the La Posta wines are outstanding values.
