Wine Advocate, Oct 2012

The 2010 Luca Beso de Dante is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40%Cabernet Sauvignon from Vista Flores, Altamira and Agrelo thatis aged for 14 months in French oak, 70% new. It has a billowingbouquet of dark cherries, cassis, bay leaf and a hint of espressothat is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied, withtobacco infused black fruit tinged with black pepper and a touchof green bell pepper. There is a welcome touch of austeritytowards the finish that begs another sip, with tobacco thenlingering on the aftertaste. This is superb. Drink 2013-2020.
