This impressive Malbec has a distinct, intense color that is deep red with purple notes. The nose has notes of spices like thyme and clove, blended with typical aromas of dried plums. This wine has palate flavors of ripe fruit with notes of white pepper, licorice and cassis. On the palate, it is juicy and generous with velvety fruit, balancing acidity and subtle minerality. A full wine, this has silky but firm tannins and a long finish.
Food Match: venison, roasts, red meat, grilled meats, game, beef, BBQ.
"The 2006s’s were bottled in early April 2008, just a week before I tasted them. The saturated purple 2006 Malbec Vina Bibiana y Cristina Coletto is sourced from a vineyard planted in 1948. It is loaded with fruit, density, extract and structure. Beautifully balanced, it will continue to develop for another 6-8 years.”"
The Wine Advocate
"Densely packed for now, with fig, cocoa and blackberry notes up front, while a reserve of boysenberry, blueberry and licorice waits in reserve. Shows flittering hints of violet and graphite as well, with a long, broad finish"
