    ($36) Bright ruby-red. Reticent but pure aromas of blackberry, black cherry and licorice. Then almost surprisingly creamy in the middle palate, with sweet flavors of dark berries and violet. Lovely shapely wine, finishing with lush tannins and subtle length.

    Really goes for the gusto, 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.

    Wine shop said this was a more approachable Malbec than the Dona Paula needing less decant time. Still poured through vinturi and decanted for one hour. Nice dark fruit tastes however the tannic backbone was slightly too overpowering. The balance just did not seem to be there. The second night did not prove to be any better. Ok wine, nothing to write home about.
