2008 Bodegas Colomé "Estate" Malbec Valle Calchaquí Salta

SKU #1058175

Listed in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2010. 91 points Wine Spectator: "Lush and rich, but not overbearing. Fig paste, crushed plum and dark blueberry fruit mingles with extra licorice snap and dark chocolate notes, with nicely embedded acidity carrying the finish. Drink now through 2011." (Insider, 07/10). And 89 points Wine Enthusiast: "A typically huge Colomé wine with initial damp, murky, funky aromas that give way to earth, roasted fruit and compost. Fortunately it's fresher in the mouth, and the wine definitely improves with airing. Still, the palate is big and oily, with roasted berry, herb and wild, exotic flavors. A unique style of Malbec from old Calchaqui vines." (08/10) Produced from vineyards which are some of the highest in the world at over 5,500 meters, Donald Hess' Bodegas Colomé is consistently one of the most interesting, delicious bottles of Argentine red wine produced. A blend of Malbec with a bit of Tannat added, the 08 shows a spicy nose of deep dark fruit, which leads to a palate of lots of fruit as well as serious structure. Smoky and mineral, with a surprising, sneaky sense of elegance as well. As usual, this wine does not fail to impress.
