External Reviews for Altos las Hormigas Malbec
Altos Las Hormigas Malbec 2008 is a happening wine. Luscious nose of sweet red and dark fruits. A bit of smoke as well perhaps. Nicely balanced wine with solid acids and modest tannins. Good dark red fruit, a bit of structure but fairly smooth at this point. Not sure what this will develop in the way of secondary characteristics - it's not particularly complex at this point. Probably better to drink now than later.
Tasting Notes : Very Good/Delicious. Best of tasting and best value (tie). Serious pepper and spice, with some crispness and plenty of blackberries and plums. Quite dry, yet bursting with fruit. Always been a superb value and the 2007 Malbec is no exception. It exhibits a smoky, spicy, black cherry bouquet. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with surprising depth and savory fruit for its modest price. Forward and easygoing it will provide much pleasure over the next several years.
