Luca Malbec 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

It offers up an inviting nose of exotic spices, incense, cherry cola, wood smoke, and black cherry. On the palate it opens to reveal a plush, moderately structured Malbec that will benefit from another 2-3 years of bottle age.

Luca:
Luca is a winery founded by Laura Catena (of the prestigious Argentinian winemaking family), named for her son, in Mendoza, Argentina. The focus is on small batch, artisanal quality wines that showcase the individual terroirs of Mendoza, produced at a state-of-the-art facility. Luis Reginato is principal winemaker. Luca produces Chardonnay, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Malbec and the Beso de Dante Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon blend. 
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Luca consistently delivers with their Malbec and this year was again no exception. Their 2010 expression has garnered more well deserved acclaim from the Wine Advocate and might not be around for long as a result.

A forward, jammy red, with layers of blueberry, blackberry and plum notes that pick up hints of smoke, graphite and mocha on the round finish. Drink now. -NW Wine Spectator. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2010 Luca Malbec 750ml
