"Lush and rich, featuring figpaste, crusted plum and dark blueberry flavors, with licorice and dark chocolate notes. Winemaker's notes: The color is deep, dark red with a magenta hue. This wine is layered on the nose with violets, black fruits, clove, and white pepper followed by flavors of blackberries, allspice and cassis. It is an elegant and rich wine with mouth coating texture. Subtle French oak and toast flavors are well balanced and fully integrated through the midpalate and well into the finish, which is long and round. It pairs well with steak, cassoulet, duck, venison and other hearty fare, including strong and sharp cheeses. This Colome Malbec is produced mainly from prephylloxera vines planted in 1854. Bodega Colome vineyards are biodynamically and sustainably farmed at an altitude of 5,500 to 8,500 feet and are believed to be the highest vineyards in the world. The sandy and alluvial soils yield small crops and produce deeply colored and concentrated wines which capture the soul of this distinct terroir. Our Estate Wines represent the unique character of cooler climate Argentine Malbec, the country's signature red grape. Grown in the northern province of Salta at high elevations, the grapes and wines express bright fruit profiles, while retaining acid and tannin for structure, a combination rare in Argentina. Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Syrah and Petit Verdot are blended for complexity, structure, and a rich, supple mouthfeel to produce a truly remarkable wine."
