Luca Malbec 2006

93 points, ROBERT PARKER- WINE ADVOCATE

Issue: WA  # 174 Dec 2007 

The 2006 Malbec has no such problems. It was aged for 12 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple, it has a splendid bouquet of smoke, toast, pencil lead, pepper, black cherry, and blackberry. Opulent and fruit forward on the palate, there are plenty of silky tannins lurking under the baby fat. Balanced, concentrated, ripe, and thoroughly hedonistic, this classy Malbec will evolve for 5-7 years and provide pleasure through 2030.
