Luigi Bosca 2011 Malbec (Luján de Cuyo) Mendoza - Argentina
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Production: 120,000 cases
Date Tasted: March 15th, 2014
Tasting Notes: A very pure expression of Malbec with a focus on the balance between the natural, fleshy-fruit and peppercorn qualities of the variety. Some oak influence from 12 months in French barrels is perceptible and successfully enhances both the blackberry and plum-infused nose and the modern, fruit-forward, easy-drinking palate. Tannins are mild but fine while mouth-watering acidity keeps everything feeling fresh and lively.
'Flexible' on the food-pairing front, making it a great dinner-party companion when you are unaware of the planned menu. Drink now-2016.
