We strive to achieve a terroir-driven Malbec from Altamira. The bright sunny days give a deep blackish color and dark color and dark fruit flavors while cool mountain nights produce violet aromas and a soft, supple texture.
Real winemakers get their hands dirty. Hands black with wine.
That what Manos Negras is all about. Rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands dirty. That's how we make these hand-crafted wines.
"The 2010 Malbec was sourced from Altamira vines averaging 51 years. It was also native fermented with malolactic in barrel followed by 12 months in 20% new French oak. Slightly reticent aromatically, with coaxing it exhibits notions of cherry blossom, spice box, tobacco, lavender, and assorted black fruits. Plush and layered on the palate, this sweetly-fruited Malbec has excellent balance and a medium-long finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next 4-5 years."
