Laura Catena, a 4th generation winemaker who grew up in a traditional Argentine-Italian winemaking family in Mendoza. The wines are named after her children - Luca, Dante and Nicola - the background of the label is the McDermott coat of arms of her American husband, Daniel McDermott. Single-vineyard wine from land belonging to the Laborde family. Deep red with big ripe fruits and smoky oak. On the palate plum and jammy blackberry, spice with nice earthy character. Tannins are a bit rustic, lingering ending with toasty oak and spice. Nice value.

Drinks more like a Rhône than new world. Savory plum, leather, mild spice.

That's a keeper. Ripe fruit and robust body.
