Winemaker's Notes:

#38 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

A blend of 85% Malbec, 8% Tannat and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Brilliantly dark with purple hues, this wine has intense aromas of black fruits, cloves, licorice, black pepper and allspice. Similar flavors follow, with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, cassis, vanilla and French oak. The wine is powerful, yet velvety on the palate, like a chocolate coating and has a very persistent finish. The richness of this Malbec-based wine allows it to be paired with both delicate and strongly flavored meats including beef, lamb, pork, venison, and duck as well as robust cheeses. This wine is drinkable now, and will age gracefully for 3 to 5 years.

About Bodega Colome:

Bodega Colome is nestled in the Calchaqui Valley, 2300 meters (7500 feet) above sea level, in the Argentine northwest. Founded in 1831, it is one of the oldest existing wineries in Argentina. In 2001, it was acquired by the Hess Family Estates. Those who enjoy their wines recognize in them the true taste of wines made with grapes of the highest quality and grown in the highest vineyards in the world (7218-10,207 feet above sea level) reflecting the soul of its terroir. Bodega y Estancia Colome's philosophy consists in the commitment to implement biodynamic agriculture, whose principles were outlined by the researcher Rudolf Steiner.
