Dunkles Purpur, schwarze Reflexe. Viel schwarze Schokolade und Oliven im anspruchsvollen Bouquet, daneben eine Fülle von schwarzer Frucht, Pflaumen und Cassis. Enorm konzentrierter Gaumen mit viel Kirschfrucht und leichten Tabaknoten, sehr dicht und von konzentrierter Fruchtsüsse, angenehme Vanillenoten begleiten das langanhaltende Finale.

Offers good density to the blueberry, raspberry and blackberry coulis flavors that are backed by vibrant acidity. Floral and mineral notes play out on the long, tangy finish. Drink now through 2014. 8,000 cases imported. -JM Wine Spectator. A Malbec wine from Salta in Argentina. 2009 Colome Malbec 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were hand harvested in 30-pound boxes, delivered to the winery and hand sorted. Ater 4 days of cold maceration, fermentation was slow, using selected yeast. Maceration lasted 18 to 20 days. Maltolacic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Once Maltolacic fermentation was completed, 20% of the wine was aged in French oak during 10 months. It was the fined using egg whites from our biodynamic farm.

Tasting Notes:

The color is deep magenta with red hues. The aromas begin with a top note of roses and violets followed by a red fruit profile of cherries and strawberries with hints of white pepper. The flavors are similar, with exotic plum and berry wrapped in a sweet, wet clay, earthy background. The entry on the palate is smooth, moving to full bodied and silky with a persistent finish.
