The Luca Malbec 2012 brims with luxurious aromas and flavors. The wine is inky purple-red in the glass, and intense aromas of spice, black cherry, and dark chocolate waft to the nose. The palate is full of complementary bright flavors, with notes of juicy cherry and freshly brewed espresso. The texture of the wine is full and complex, with a lively acidity and a persistent finish.

Enjoy this red wine now with foods such as roasted wild game, seared beef steaks, or grilled pork. It will also cellar nicely.
