Considered an icon of Argentine high-end wine and quintessence of Alta Vista, Alto is produced only in quality vintages. It is object of all our experience from the vineyard to the bottle. It combines elegance, power and complexity.
Deep ruby red color. Complex aromas of black fruit, spices and chocolate remembrances. The
palate is elegant and open, with silky tannins and a long and intense finish.
Blend: 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon
"Densely packed, but ripe, lush and inviting, with unabashed licorice, plum sauce, melted fig and boysenberry fruit flavors that glide over hints of spice and mocha. The long, velvety finish pumps out the fruit in spades, with a loamy edge to keep it all honest. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon."
"The 2007 Alto is a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new French oak. Purple/black in color with an alluring nose of sandalwood, exotic spices, black cherry, lavender, and black plum, on the palate it displays opulence, considerable power accompanied by finesse. It has enough structure to evolve for several years and will offer a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2027."
The Wine Advocate
"rated bright ruby. Blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and menthol complemented by sexy, sweet oak tones on the nose. Plush and broad but with a distinct herbal edge and firm acids giving shape to the fine-grained dark berry fruit. Very rich but less sweet than the 2009 Terroir Selection malbec. Began with slightly drying tannins but harmonized nicely with air."

A truly outstanding Malbec for a special occasion - big, rich, earthy, spicy - served this on it's own - didn't need any food to shine.
