LUIGI BOSCA RESERVA MALBEC 2005

I’ve had this wine in my cellar since August and I can’t get over how much this wine has softened in the 7 months since I bought it. I brought it up from the basement and it was slightly chilled which also helped to soften the wine. This is a lovely varietal Malbec. The finish is medium with no hints of bitterness, or pepper. Well worth the money! Looks like there are still a few around … Jump on them!

Description
This wine earned an Editors’ Choice nod with a score of 91 points in the February 2008 issue of Wine Enthusiast.

Tasting Note
A big, broad-shouldered wine, with muscular layers of black fig, coffee, bittersweet cocoa and dark licorice piled on top of hefty cedar-tinged tannins. A bit of a brute in style, but cellaring should soften its edges enough. Drink now through 2010. Smart Buy. Score – 91. (James Molesworth, www.winespectator.com, Feb.29, 2008)
