WineScores' Review

Savoury, sturdy, lengthy.
With its awesome new label, this single vineyard offering from Luigi Bosca grabs attention, equally, from the terms Single Vineyard and D.O.C printed upon it. New to me, the appellation of Lujan de Cuyo has had a protected and controlled denomination of origin board, which was established in 1989 as the first D.O.C in the Americas. Of course, rules and guidelines within the zone must also be followed to earn the right to demonstrate it on a label.
This wine also happened to earn a coveted TOP 100 of 2015 in Wine Spectator.
Anticipate aromas of muddled cherries and wild summer berries, roasted herbs, violets, espresso and spiced dark cocoa. It is a savoury version, well-woven and sturdy. The finish is lengthy and trails, cocoa nibs, espresso and spice, its structure carved out by fine and firm tannins.
Pair: grilled or roasted meats, mushroom and thyme stuffed ravioli.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.
