Alta Vista Malbec Blend Alto 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The flagship 2007 Alto is a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented with native yeasts and aged for 18 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits a brooding, Bordeaux-like bouquet of exotic spices and black fruits. Combining elegance with power, this full-bodied effort is intense, packed with flavor, and exceptionally lengthy...95" WA 08/09 "Densely packed, but ripe, lush and inviting, with unabashed licorice, plum sauce, melted fig and boysenberry fruit flavors that glide over hints of spice and mocha. The long, velvety finish pumps out the fruit in spades, with a loamy edge to keep it all honest. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon...94" WS 09/10

Mit seiner tiefen, karmesinroten Farbe und Aromen von dunklen Früchten, würziger Eiche und Schokolade umschmeichelt er die Nase. Der Alto ist ein reichhaltiger, komplexer und sinnlicher Wein. Im Gaumen verführt er mit reifen Pflaumenaromen und feinen Kaffeenoten, unterlegt von Eleganz, Struktur und Intensität. Der Abgang ist kräftig und langanhaltend. Ein grosser Wein aus Argentinien und der Neuen Welt im Old Wine Style. Limitierte Produktion!
