Winemaker Notes

The Altocedro Reserva grapes come from very old vineyards (65+ years) and 100% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. This wine is more complex and stronger and is geared towards a more experienced consumer, who is used to drinking full bodied wines.

100% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A dark and racy red, sporting a creamy mix of blackberry, cassis and dark plum fruit wrapped in silky tannins. Hints of freshly cured tobacco and spice fill the finish. Drink now through 2014. 1,667 cases made.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Malbec Reserva was sourced from vines averaging 75 years of age and spent 15 months in a mix of new and second-use French oak. It delivers a step up in richness from the Ano Cedro cuvee, along with greater density, succulence, and length. Plush on the palate, it conceals enough structure to evolve for another 2-3 years and will be at its best from 2012 to 2021.

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.

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.
