Appellation: Valle de Uco (Mendoza, Argentina)
Varietal Composition: 100 percent Malbec
Aging: 14 months in French oak, 35 percent new

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"From new plantings in Gualtallary, the 2014 Malbec has increased the proportion of fruit coming from this cool place to make it approximately a 50/50 blend of Malbec fruit from Gualtallary and La Consulta, both in the Valle de Uco. There is a big jump in precision and harmony along with more freshness and elegance. The expansive palate has great depth and fruit with very good freshness. This could well be the best vintage of Luca Malbec and I think the best might be yet to come, as the new vineyard matures."

- Vinous Media
"Saturated medium ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a minty nuance. Juicy black fruit, espresso and spice flavors are complemented by sexy oak tones and lifted by a violet element. Conveys a light touch but also has good density for the year; better-balanced than the 2013. Firmly tannic but not dry, finishing with a note of menthol."
