Review
The 2011 Luca Malbec comes from three vineyards in the Uco Valley in Altamira, La Consulta and Gualtallary that have an average age of 46 years. It is aged for 16 months in French oak (60% new). It has a floral bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb and a touch of Hoi Sin that is well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, dry tannins on the entry that lend this Malbec a "classic" feel. It is very well-balanced and harmonious, with light strawberry, balsamic and pomegranate notes on the minerally finish. This is a superb Malbec. 92 Points - The Wine Advocate

Wine maker notes
This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible colorócould use it in an inkwell! Lavender, spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa and wood smoke. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long fruit-filled finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well (and not talk back when you don't give it the car keys!). Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance
