K&L Notes

The Mendoza Valley is the Argentine equivalent of Napa Valley, and is ground zero for top-flight Malbec. Malbec is an very intriguing grape. It was always viewed in France as merely a blending grape incapable of standing on its own but it found its ideal home in Argentina, where it has soared to new heights and shown itself obviously capable of standing on its own merits. The Pizzella family, who grew the grapes for La Posta “La Pizzella,” are relative newcomers to the Mendoza Province, but their early success growing cool-climate Malbec grapes quickly drew attention from locals. Paula and Pablo Pizzella are both physical education teachers, and they and their three children get plenty of exercise working their beautiful 10-hectare vineyard located in Altimira (La Consulta). Their vineyard is named Finca Coquena after the Andes god and protector of goats, sheep, and llamas. The 2014 La Posta “Pizzella” Malbec Argentina is a fantastic value, deep ruby red in the glass with seductive aromas of red berry, spice and mocha. The palate is a sexy blend of dark berry fruit, spice, minerals and just the right hint of rich oak. This all marries incredibly well thanks to the gripping acidity and balance of tannins and fruit. Pair this beauty with filet mignon or a simple pizza. Either way you’ll have a smile on your face.
