Winemaker's Notes:

The color is deep, dark red with a magenta hue. This wine is layered on the nose with aromas of black and red fruits (blackberries and blackcurrants, raspberries and cherries) and the floral scent of violets abound on its complex nose, with hints of spices and minerals. It is an elegant and rich wine with a succulent and muscular structure of round velvety tannins. Subtle French oak and toast flavors are well balanced and fully integrated through the mid-palate and well into the finish, which is delicate, yet very long.

It pairs well with steak, cassoulet, duck, venison and other hearty fare, including strong and sharp cheeses.

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.
