Luca Malbec 2008

90 points, Stephen Tanzer

"Good bright, deep ruby. Expressive nose offers blueberry, cassis, violet, pepper, licorice and menthol. Sweet, creamy and deep, with a chewy texture to the blueberry and dark chocolate flavors. A weighty style but kept fresh by strong underlying acidity. Finishes with plush, ripe tannins and a lingering chocolatey sweetness."
