Luca Malbec 2015
|Region||Argentina, Uco Valley|
Wine EnthusiastDespite humid conditions in Mendoza in 2015, this old vins Malbec shows a fine combination of blackberry, smoke and mocha aromas. It's in tip-top shape on the palate, although the acidity is a bit wiry. Oaky flavors of vanilla and mocha work well with its black cherry and blackberry fruit, which is unwavering on the finish. Drink through 2022.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Malbec is an assemblage of old vines from different parts of the Valle de Uco, Gualtallary and La Consulta. There is a slightly blurriness in the nose here, not as focused as previous vintages, a little musky and with hints of decayed flowers. The palate feels better, with good freshness and tasty flavors. 156,000 bottles were produced.
