Malbec 2014

A fine Malbec expression, clean nose of violets, plums, blackberries, balsamic hints, spices...it maintains freshness despite the sunny alcohol of Salta. A beauty — 14 days ago

Bodega Colomé

Auténtico High Altitude Vineyards Malbec 2015

Dusty blackberry and smoky prune, black cherry, black raisin, violet and dark rose aromas all coalescing into a complex, arid mix of earthy dust and cocoa powder smells, with a side of black tahini. Black currant, tart black cherries, satin tannins, vine charcoal, grill char, valerian root, burnt gingerbread, plum reduction, and a balsamic depth bordering on hoisin. Great that this one has such concentration from high elevation fruit. Dark, deep and intense at a relative value. #Hesswine #Hess #Hessfamily #Argentinewine #Argentinawine #Salta #Colomé #highelevationwine #calchaquivalley #malbec #argentinemalbec — a month ago

Piattelli Vineyards

Reserve High Altitude Malbec 2018

Really good, smooth, no sharp after taste. Had it with roasted veggies (salt), really universal, not too dry, barely sweet.
