Luigi Bosca Malbec 2014

Mendoza, ArgentinaFifty year old vines from Finca La Linda vineyard (950m) in Vistalba, Luján de Cuyo make up this full-bodied malbec, one perfumed with violets and bedded with dense, sweetly ripe cassis and thorny blackberry. Tannins are firm, but mature, with coffee, black cherry jam, tobacco and ample nutmeg spicing on the wooded finish. This spent one year in mostly new French oak, which somewhat overrides the dense fruit at this young stage, but will integrate more with time. Try this with flank steak.Tasted: 11 April 2017Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 23.49 BCLS AB 22.00 fine wine shops ON 15.25 LCBO Producer: Luigi BoscaDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
