Jen’s Pick: Luca Malbec

Laura Catena is the mastermind behind Luca wines, and she has a dream to produce Argentinian wines which express a distinct sense of place. Laura has a deep connection to Mendoza wine country (her father is Nicolás Catena of the famed Bodega Catena Zapata). The vineyards that this wine comes from are at an elevation 3300-5000ft. The cool climate malbec offers such depth that isn’t always seen. This deep inky colored wine has blackberry and violet notes, black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa and freshly brewed espresso. Lively acidity then leads to an incredibly long finish. I call this wine my “comfort” wine. And with fall coming, it’s just the thing.
