Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of ripe blackberries, dark baker's chocolate and black currants. Nuances of exotic spices and oak follow. The flavors are similar – black licorice, boysenberries and nutmeg. The volume is big, round, luscious and mouth-coating. The finish is made up of fine-grain tannins with hints of oak. This wine will gracefully age for 8-10 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.
