Incredible color — could use it in an inkwell! Loads of spicy red fruit and black cherry cola aromas with notes of rose petal and cocoa. The red berry and black cherry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of black licorice keeps the mouth watering.
This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well. It pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail,
all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.
I have a knowledgable friend who runs a wine shop in Toledo, OH who introduced me to this fabulous wine. My oenophile wife and I enjoyed a bottle with a triple cream brie, blackberry confit, and a baguette. It was fantastic. Luka is very soft for such a young wine. After tasting this wine I went back and purchased the remaining bottles in their inventory. I keep telling myself I'm going to cellar it for a few years, but I can't stop drinking it. I have one bottle left and I don't know how long I can hold out.
Full body, lots of fruit and some tannins. Great wine for the price!
