Luca Beso de Dante 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Dark and inky red from core to rim. Absolute blockbuster of a nose, with deep cassis aromas, pencil lead, French vanilla, blackberry liqueur, and a hint of mocha. This is an absolutely pure expression of these noble Bordeaux varietals, and this will ... Cory Gowan. A wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2009 Luca Beso de Dante 750ml

Dark and inky red from core to rim. Absolute blockbuster of a nose with deep cassis aromas pencil lead French vanilla blackberry liqueur and a hint of mocha. This is an absolutely pure expression of these noble Bordeaux varietals and this will more than please New World cabernet fans everywhere. Smooth and luscious on entry with a soft velvety mouthfeel this is a serious wine from old vines. Finishes fresh and long. I d say with a good decant this is in its prime drinking window now but should cellar well through 2022+. Cory Gowan.
