2018 Luca Old Vine Malbec Uco Valley Mendoza
Winemaker Notes: Spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavors pop on the palate from its depth and lively acidity, finishing with hints of espresso. Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses.
James Suckling - "Blueberries and black tea with volcanic salt and violets on the nose and palate Medium to full body and fine, silky tannins. Savory finish. Drink or hold."
Wine Enthusiast - #4 Top 100 of 2020 - "Concentrated black-fruit aromas alongside hints of cardamom and coriander open this lush Malbec. Blackberry, cassis and dark plum flavors are pure and agile on the palate."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Old Vine Malbec comes from vineyards in La Consulta and Gualtallary, both in the Uco Valley in Mendoza. It's a floral, juicy and expressive bottling with nicely integrated oak, fine and round tannins and some finesse. 156,000 bottles."
