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

WS Top 100 ‘17, and I can see why. Smooth, balanced, elegant. Probably the best Malbec I have tasted. Winner of Thanksgiving Eve tasting. Rating affirmed 11/30/18. Minimal decanting necessary.

Plenty of red and black berries on the palate. High altitude gives this a bit of elegant structure, a floral nose and a spiced finish. Great value. Took a chance at Costco under $20.

Very dark, almost opaque. Medium to thin lip. Leather and mineral aroma. Very balanced. You can taste the complexity from the blend. Long finish. Low to medium tannin.
