#32 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
Colomé Estate is a Malbec based blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat. The signature red varietal of Argentina, Malbec excels in the warm, dry climate, producing exceptional wines with dark, spicy aromas and succulent texture. Serve with exotic game, lamb and beef. Enjoy over the next three to six years.
Quite ripe, with nearly exotic plum sauce, braised fig and crushed blueberry notes rolled together, while spice, mocha and incense hints help stretch out the juicy, dense finish. A flashy style, but well-balanced. Drink now through 2012."
I served this wine at our family Christmas dinner this past year and it was a hit! Malbec is a great red for all palates, because it is smooth yet full-bodied. Looking forward to another bottle. This wine scored #32 on the Wine Spectator top 100 wines of 2009.
