2008 Bodegas Poesia Pasodoble Mendoza

2008 Bodegas Poesia Pasodoble Mendoza


I find most wines from Mendoza to be at least a good bargain and this one certainly follows suit for only $10.99 at Costco.  This is a nice red blend, consisting of 45% Malbec, 35% Syrah, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

And it’s an interesting combo.  The first thing that hit me, almost on the pour, was the smoky/wood.  There’s a big cigar cedar element to this wine, which is ok with me if the flavor can pull through, which it did.  Being an ’08 it’s had a little time to chill out.  There’s a nice blue berry component, a little tobacco; some pepper on the finish, a bit chewy.

Overall, I’m going to say it’s a nice wine for the money.  Certainly a little different package from Mendoza with the blended varietals, but I would recommend it, especially at this price.  You could enjoy this wine with a lot of different cuisine. Rating: 88 Points
