Wine Advocate, Oct 2012

The 2011 Luca Malbec comes from three vineyards in the UcoValley in Altamira, La Consulta and Gualtallary that have anaverage age of 46 years. It is aged for 16 months in French oak(60% new). It has a floral bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry,rhubarb and a touch of Hoi Sin that is well-defined. The palate ismedium-bodied with fine, dry tannins on the entry that lend thisMalbec a “classic” feel. It is very well-balanced and harmonious,with light strawberry, balsamic and pomegranate notes on theminerally finish. This is a superb Malbec. Drink 2013-2020.
