K&L Notes

With this release, Colomé continues to solidify their position not only as a top producer of Malbec in the region of Salta, or for that matter in all Argentina, but also as a reference producer working in extremely high altitude vineyards. As the review indicates, for this bottling to be so complex and delicious with vines planted relatively recently, one has to wonder how great it will be as the vineyard continues to mature.

    This Malbec, grown in calcareous granite soils at incredibly high altitude, is the real deal. Brawny, savory, and violet tinged dark fruit aromas on the nose, coupled with a generous melange of fruit (think purple skinned fruits, lush yet fresh and mineral as well), bring to mind Hermitage. Two years in well seasoned oak barrels seems to have given this wine the perfect amount of time and development needed. Intense, persistent, and long, this is quite possibly as close to perfection as I've ever had in a young Malbec. Impressive now, I suspect this will age very nicely as well. With only a few barrels produced, this is top quality, collectible Malbec.
