2008 Bodega Luigi Bosca Malbec/Petit Verdot/Tannat Gala 1 Mendoza
Producer: Bodega Luigi Bosca
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
(85% malbec with 10% petit verdot and 5% tannat): Good bright, full red. Currant, earth, menthol and chocolatey, vanillin oak on the nose, lifted by a whiff of rose petal. Suave on entry, then mellow and round in the middle, with good freshness to the slightly medicinal red cherry and currant flavors. Ripe acids and fine-grained tannins give this wine a solid structural underpinning for bottle aging, even if it's approachable already.
