Bodega Colomé Malbec Blend Reserva 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"I reviewed the 2007 Colome Malbec Reserva last year. It was presented again in this year’s tasting so I am repeating my note and adding one point to the score (and the price has increased by $10). Colome’s old-vine cuvee is one of Argentina’s icon Malbecs. The 2007 Reserva is 100% Malbec sourced from a 17-acre plot of 60- to 150-year-old vines purchased by owner, Donald Hess, in 2001. The wine spent 24 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it has that extra dimension of complexity that only old vines can provide. It offers up a confiture of black cherry and black raspberry along with mineral notes and toasty new oak. Dense, layered, concentrated, this rich, impeccably balanced effort will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring and drink well through 2030...96" WA 12/10

Bodega Colome:
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".

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

I took a bottle of this wine to a recent party and it got excellent reviews from all my friends. If you want to show off some good wine that is outside the California/Australia paradigm, check this one out while you can.

I shared a bottle of this at Taranta in Boston, it was highly recommended by the staff. We would agree that this wine is outstanding, well structured and at 15% Alcohol it packs a whallop so needs to breath. Doesn't appear to be available in Canada. Strangely, I did not realize that the Amalaya was from Colome, not sure if same vintner? The Amalya De Colome 2007 is a current fave of mine (bought a case in Kelowna, BC)
