Bodega Colomé Red Blend Calchaquies Estate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep vermillion with red hues, this wine offers fruit aromas of cherries, orange zest and raspberries, with hints of vanilla. On the palate, ripe, dark fruit flavors mix with licorice and spice, balanced by round silky tannins creating a long, persistent finish. Enjoy with red meat, salmon, pasta with red sauces and a variety of cheeses.

Colome was farmed for thousand of years by the native population who were excellent stewards of the land. The original Indio language in Ihe Cakhaqul Valley was "Kakan"; but at the end of the 15th century the Incas entered the valley. Since then, the dialect spoken in the valley has been "Quechua". In 1549, Calchaqui Valley was first occupied by the Spanish conquistadores but they encountered stiff resistance from the native population. 90 years later the Spanish succeeded expropriating the native population. As the tale goes, the native tribe chief Colomln received vines from the Spanish conquistadores in the late 16th century for good services rendered. The old Colomi winery was founded in 1831. probably by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolas Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. His daughter Ascencion, who married Jose Benjamin Davalos, introduced in 1854 from France pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon wines to Colome. Three vineyards of 10 acres/ 4 hectares, dating from this time still produce grapes. Colome is considered the oldest existing winery in Argentina. Read less

Deep red, with purple tinges, this wine offers red fruit aromas of cherries and raspberries, with a subtle hint of vanilla. This is a glittering deep red wine, with purple tinges. A spicy, intense and sweeping wine, easy to drink, but yet with a long persistent mouth. Tannins are mild and round. Ideally paired with red meat, pasta read more...with tomato sauce and cheese.
