Luigi Bosca Malbec Reserva Lujan de Cuyo Mendoza 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

It shows an intense violet color and displays ripe cherry and plum aromas. Spiced, with hints of mocha and blackberries, this is a delicately perfumed wine with elegant sweetness. The DOC “Luján de Cuyo” was created in 1989 with the objective of protecting and regulating the farming and production techniques of the Malbec varietal, which is native of the Luján de Cuyo region. As it happens with the most demanding Denominations of the world, a wine with DOC Lujan de Cuyo certification must comply with a strict protocol that begins at the vineyard and finishes once the wine has been produced, after obtaining the approval of the Regulating Commission. “La Linda” Vineyard. Vistalba. Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. 960 m above sea level Paring: Red meat - Partridge, quail, turkey - Roasts - Hard cheese.

Luigi Bosca:
The Arizus take pride in a tradition that was born more than one hundred years ago; years in which the family worked toward improving their technique and the observation and understanding of nature, thus giving rise to their approach to wine-making.

The Arizus take pride in a tradition that was born more than one hundred years ago; years in which the family worked toward improving their technique and the observation and understanding of nature, thus giving rise to their approach to wine-making. This is also where their commitment to improving vintage after vintage and to better understand those who choose their wines takes root. Luigi Bosca’s future is challenging and is always thinking ahead. Its present is focused on the combination of daily work with the creation of new ideas. This is Bodega Luigi Bosca, this is how the Arizu family was created and this is how their history begins everyday, because their past is always a prologue to their future. Read less

Dark and intensely purple but decidedly transparent at the same time. This present a totally different aromatic array than the other wines with funky, earthy tones taking sometime to blow off before revealing a touch of rubbery, oily shale then layers of subtle dried bay leaves, dried flowers, a bit of musky white pepper, a touch of horsy stable, a bit of vanillin, dark, bitter fruit tones. Lovely. In the mouth this is smaller scaled with fine a fine precise feel and wonderful integration of structural elements. The dark fruits have a soft bittersweet chocolate edge to them with a lovely sappy quality. Impressive stuff with power and depth but not the weight of many Malbecs. 92pts

This is one of my favorite Malbecs. It's also amazing value for money. It reminds me of dark chocolate and cherries. Not too alcoholic with great bouquet. I tried the 2003 in Buenos Aires and it was great.

What's New in Booze - 9.1 out of 10 The D.O.C. of Lujan de Cuyo was established in 1989 with the objective of protecting and regulating the Malbec variety, which is native to the region. A wine labeled with the D.O.C. certification must comply with the strict protocol that begins at the vineyard and finishes once the wine is produced, after getting the go ahead from the Regulating Board. The grapes come from 70 year old vines and sees 14 months in oak barrels. It shows an intense shade of violet with ripe cherry and plum aromas followed by a palate that is spiced with hints of mocha and blackberry summed up by a velvety tannic finish.

Lush, full-fruited Malbec whose fruit intensity matches its dark purple color.
