Stick your nose into a glass of this, and there's an onslaught of powerful fresh plum and burning firewood - one of the most forward bouquets you're likely to experience from a malbec. Then taste: the flavors of plum and smoke continue, not too sweet as per the usual Altos style, with touches of ginger and spice. It's potentially a great pairing with East Asian barbecued meats.

At the (reduced) price in British Columbia, this wine has the usual Mendoza power and mild rusticity (dry mountain herbs and aromatic wood) we have come to enjoy. The nose is spiced and redolent of dried cranberries and boxwood. The entry is rich and slightly warm with some tentacled angularity. More balanced and structured than many Argentine wines at this very modest price point. Highly recommended for the financially strapped; buy a case. Gotta like the name Ant Heights. 89 points.

A mild malbec with a faint nose and a bright, inoffensive flavor, quite a good substitute for a cheap bottle of Cahors but likely a touch too acidic for fruit lovers. The key is to leave it open for a day or two – then the wine takes on a velvety yet still very direct quality. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=597)

The first sip revealed a malbec with flavors of black cherry, fading into a concentrated cacophony of spices and chocolate. Full Review here! http://malbeceamos.com/2011/10/27/2010-altos-las-hormigas-malbec/

Bright full red. Blackberry, plum, currant and red licorice on the somewhat reduced nose. Juicy, spicy and firm-edged, with a medicinal cast to the dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Good honest wine with moderate depth and pliancy and a slightly green quality to the aftertaste.

This juicy red sports floral, spice, crushed cherry and dark raspberry notes, with a hint of mocha on the finish. Drink now..

Supple, pure fruit expressions and a clean fresh finish.

Mendoza, ArgentinaAltos Las Hormigas Malbec is an outstanding red wine gem from Argentina. In 1995, Alberto Antonini, a well-known Tuscan winemaker, and Antonio Morescalchi, a young entrepreneur, took a trip to visit the major viticultural areas of Argentina. They returned powerfully impressed by the potential of Malbec in the Mendoza appellation. Later that year they purchased 216 hectares of vineyards in Lujn de Cuyo, and Altos Las Hormigas was born. The estate's success story continues with the new 2011 Malbec. Wine & Spirits reported in April 2010 that Altos Las Hormigas Malbec is the #2 most popular Argentine wine in US restaurants. Winemakers are Alberto Antonini and Attilio Pagli. Altos Las Hormigas Malbec is deep garnet-purple in color with a beautiful nose of plums, raspberries, mocha, spice and mineral notes. It has full body, soft tannins and well integrated oak. Rich and silky on the palate, it is long and elegant on the finish.Enjoy Altos Las Hormigas Malbec over the next 7-8 years with grilled steak, beef empanadas, hearty pastas, pizza and cheeses.

This is ripe, with raspberry and boysenberry fruit laced with notes of mocha and fruitcake. Fleshy and round. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now.

Opens with tarry, cooked aromas but with airing, oak and ripe, earthy berry notes squeak out. The palate is chewy and solid, with extract and tannic grab as well as smoky, sultry flavors of roasted black fruits and bouillon. Meaty and satisfying.
