Luigi Bosca Malbec Single Vineyard DOC 2011

Luigi Bosca Malbec Single Vineyard DOC 2011

Sku: 025438

The D.O.C "Lujan de Cuyo" was created in 1989 with the objective of protecting and regulating the Malbec variety which is native to this region. As it happens with the most demanding denominations in the world, wine with the certification DOC, Lujan De Cuyo must comply with strict protocol that begins at the vineyard and finishes when final product is bottled. All the grapes used for this Malbec come from the VISTALBA ESTATE. The wine shows an intense shade of violet, ripe cherry and plum aromas. It is spiced with traces of mocha and blackberries. It is delicately perfumed and has a long elegant sweetness.

2009: 89 Points - Nathan Wesley, Wine Spectator: "Rich, displaying dark cassis, blackberry and plum sauce flavors that are balanced with oak, spice and licorice notes on the long, broad finish. Drink now."

2009: 88 (+?) Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: " Good full, bright red. Brooding aromas of dark berries, mocha and oak. More substantial but less appealing today than the regular malbec bottling, with the flavors of blackberry, mocha and violet struggling under a heavy layer of oak. Plenty of material here but the tannins are dusty and slightly dry, giving the finish a rigid quality. Will this come into better focus with time in bottle? "

I enjoyed this wine at a local restaurant the other evening and it was another example of incredible values flowing from Argentina. Smooth with soft tanins and an elegant finish. Everyone at the table was amazed that such a great wine could be so affordable.
