Winemaker Notes

The Reserve bottling is a serious step up. It is fermented in vat, but then moved to barrel for 12 to 15 months of aging. The 2006 version is intense, juicy and pure, with a licorice, floral and mineral-filled finish. The wine shows clearly outstanding potential.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
Rich and dark, but pure, with nice drive to the beam of raspberry, plum sauce and macerated black currant fruit. Creamy tannins and a long, well-integrated finish just sail through, with fine buried minerality. Drink now through 2014.

Altocedro Learn About Altocedro Winery Video
The winery of Altocedro is located in the growing region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. This is one of the premier Argentine growing zones. Limited production with sustainable growing practices make the Altocedro wines a cult-type wine in Argentina. Winemaker Karim Mussi Saffie focuses on producing terroir-driven wines.

All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand using no machinery in the process. The vines range up to 70 years of age, with only 1,600 plants per acre, and strict harvesting of only 1.2 kg of grapes per vine. The extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago.

Malbec

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
