Luigi Bosca Malbec Terroir Las Miradores 2016

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThe Bosca Malbec Terroir is sourced from Finca Los Miradores vineyard that sits at 1,150m above sea level in the Valle de Uco planted to a massal selection of malbec vines a decade ago. It’s ripe and extracted, with blackberry, cola, and blueberry in combination with toasty oak from ageing in 30 percent new French barriques. The fruit and oak work harmoniously, but this could benefit from additional time in the bottle to allow the wood to integrate further. The tannins are also firm and youthful, and demand a hearty protein if this is going to be opened tonight. It just doesn't quite have the freshness and purity of fruit of top examples.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: Geoffrey MossPrices: BC 52.99 private wine shops AB 39.99 fine wine shops Producer: Luigi BoscaDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
