A robust and concentrated Argentine red wine made from the country's classic Malbec grape. Aromas of dark fruit, smoke, and black spice on the nose and palate. This is a full-bodied blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with the remainder being Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. Pair with rare meats.

|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Wow! Heady aromas of raspberry jam, vanilla, and cigar box, carry through to a lingering fruit finish. Lots of acidity makes this a perfect wine to pair with creamy pasta dishes, or sharp cheeses.
Tasted March 2018.
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby in colour with aromas of plum, strawberry, raspberry and cedar. It is full bodied with well balanced acidity & tannins with flavours of strewed red fruits and black pepper. This will pair nicely with hamburgers or cheeses pasta dishes. Tasted on March 11, 2018.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
85% Cab, with just a dash of Cab Franc and Merlot. It was sourced from all over Mendoza. Vistalba, Carrodilla, and Lujan de Cuyo.
This wine has some nice ruby red colouration at this point. It spent over a year in barrel maturing and it still has a lot of those oaky undertones. Ruby-red fruit, damson, dried herb, and tobacco.
It is quite savoury, though not harsh by any means.
Put this wine with some veal chops or mushrooms.
|Luigi Bosca Gala 2 2014 is a rich, full-bodied red blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with equal amounts of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. This juicy red from Mendoza has ripe blackberry, plum liqueur and vanilla flavours on the palate finishing long and peppery. Pair with a game roast. - Community Wine Reviews|
