Issue #192- Dec 2010 

The 2007 Nico By Luca is 100% Malbec sourced from 50-year-old vines and aged for 18 months in new French oak. Deep purple in color with legs that coat the glass, it serves up a superb aromatic array of sandalwood, exotic spices, espresso, lavender, black cherry, and black plum. This is followed by a dense, rich, voluminous effort with intense flavors, precision balance, and a lengthy finish. It will provide a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2027.
