Colomé Estate is a Malbec based blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat. The signature red varietal of Argentina, Malbec excels in the warm, dry climate, producing exceptional wines with dark, spicy aromas and succulent texture.
"Dark and dense with ripe blackberry and spice; intense with depth and beautiful oak influence and vivid, rich flavors; lush, elegant and stunning; the best vintage yet of this important wine. "
"The 2011 Estate Malbec in reality has 8% Tannat, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot which I believe add to the complexity of the wine, which has an intense nose of concentrated raspberries and violets and just a hint of spicy oak. It is exuberant, with notes that reminded me of Touriga Nacional, almost Muscat-like. The palate is medium-bodied, with sweet tannins pleasant and supple, fresh and easy to drink"
The Wine Advocate
"Saturated, bright ruby-red. Crushed blackberry, pepper, violet, tobacco leaf and fresh herbs on the nose, plus a whiff of meaty reduction. Penetrating acidity confers lovely vinosity and clarity to this high-altitude wine's tightly coiled cherry and spice flavors. Finishes with a very firm spine of tannins and acids and sneaky length and lift. Here's a producer that trusts its fruit and does not feel the need to boost it with new lumber."
