2008 Bodegas Colomé Estate Malbec

SKU #500887

Wine Spectator Top 100: 2010 #66! The color is deep, dark red with a magenta hue. This wine is layered on the nose with violets, black fruits, clove, and white pepper followed by flavors of blackberries, allspice and cassis. It is an elegant and rich wine with mouth coating texture. Subtle French oak and toast flavors are well balanced and fully integrated through the mid-palate and well into the finish, which is long and round.

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Lush and rich, but not overbearing. Fig paste, crushed plum and dark blueberry fruit mingles with extra licorice snap and dark chocolate notes, with nicely embedded acidity carrying the finish.
This Colomé Malbec is produced mainly from pre-phylloxera vines planted in 1854. Bodega Colomé vineyards are bio-dynamically and sustainably farmed at an altitude of 5,500 to 8,500 feet and are believed to be the highest vineyards in the world. The sandy and alluvial soils yield small crops and produce deeply colored and concentrated wines which capture the soul of this distinct terroir. The Estate Wines represent the unique character of cooler climate Argentine Malbec, the country's signature red grape. Grown in the northern province of Salta at high elevations, the grapes and wines express bright fruit profiles, while retaining acid and tannin for structure, a combination rare in Argentina. Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Syrah and Petit Verdot are blended for complexity, structure, and a rich, supple mouthfeel to produce a truly remarkable wine.
