High Note Elevated Malbec 2008
from Argentina, South America
The velvety texture and deep flavor of the small juicy berries of High Note's Malbec grapes are distinctively influenced by the environment in which they are grown. Our Uco Valley vineyards, high in the Andes foothills of Mendoza, enjoy the perfect combination of elements for growing this unique varietal. Intense sunlight, cool temperatures and dry conditions allow for the fruit to slowly mature until handpicked for optimal flavor.
The result is High Note's brilliant violet color and with intense, sweet spice on the palate balanced by notes of plums, cassis, blackberries, and black cherries. It is creamy, smooth, and ripe in the mouth with soft, round tannins and a long silky finish.
A highly heralded match with grilled meats and vegetables. Complements rich smoky flavors as well as pasta dishes, spicy tomato sauces and roasted chicken.
