    Winemaker's Notes:

    Incredible color — could use it in an inkwell! Loads of spicy red fruit and black cherry cola aromas with notes of rose petal and cocoa. The red berry and black cherry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of black licorice keeps the mouth watering.

    This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well. It pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Really goes for the gusto and pulls it off, with dark fig sauce, melted purple licorice, mocha, fruitcake and crushed boysenberry and blueberry fruit all gliding along rich, velvety tannins. Long mouthfilling finish.

    The purple/black 2007 Luca Malbec was sourced from a 43-year-old ungrafted vineyard and aged for 12 months in 60% French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. It reveals an alluring nose of smoke, cedar, spice box, black cherry, and rose petal. Full-bodied on the palate, the wine is well-balanced, layered, and intense. There is enough silky tannin to support 2-3 years of additional bottle age. Drink this tasty Malbec from 2010 to 2018.

    Luca is the personal project of Laura Catena, M.D., daughter of Nicolas Catena, the founder of Catena-Zapata.

    Opened this wine last evening and was surprised at how vibrant the color was and you couldn't even see through it like many other wines. The taste is very gentle to the pallette and goes well with steak. Would highly recommend trying.

    Really great wine, but it really should be for the price. Very rich, full body. Great for a hearty meal.

    Very earthly and spicy with strong tannin. Will def. benefit from a long period of airing.
