Winemaker's Notes:

Black, deep intense color with nose of ripe black fruit, blackberries and black pepper followed by flavors of loganberry, cinnamon and black currants. It is very full bodied with round tannins and finesse. Structured and elegant, it is a wine that is powerful yet refined. Best paired with osso bucco, lamb, strong cheeses, roasted walnuts, and other hearty fare.

80% Malbec 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

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.
