Luca 2018 Beso de Dante

Winemaker Notes

Aromas of cassis with mint notes and oak. Medium-bodied and classically structured with good density. The Cabernet fruit melds seamlessly with the Malbec, creating a well-structured and balanced blend with moderate tannins and a lengthy finish.

This blend will pair well with any Cab-friendly dishes such as steak, pork, lamb, and strong cheeses. It can handle any dish with cream or butter sauces.

Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
This is linear and focused with a vertical line of tannins running through the wine. Blackberries and hints of dried herbs and licorice. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and fresh. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, malbec and a hint of cabernet franc. Better after 2022, but already beautiful.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The floral, juicy and expressive 2018 Beso de Dante shows good freshness and balance with some tannin (it's very young), and it might benefit from some more time in bottle. This is a serious Malbec.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Big, rich and fleshy, with a broad spectrum of red fruit and dried dark fruit flavors loaded with cooking spice accents. The ripe finish shows cocoa nib notes. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
