Bodega Colomé Malbec Blend Reserva 2007
"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
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.
This was given to me as a Retirement gift! One of the best Malbec's I ever had!
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)
open a bottle on Xma's day 2009. very nice intense wine. everyone enojed it...need to breath for at keast half an hour though.
Four and a half glasses

95 Points - Wine Advocate Colome's old-vine cuvee is one of Argentina's icon Malbecs. The 2007 Reserva is 85% Malbec and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from a 20-acre plot of 60- to 150-year-old vin
Quite ripe, with nearly exotic plum sauce, braised fig and crushed blueberry notes rolled together, while spice, mocha and incense hints help stretch out the juicy, dense finish. A flashy style, but well-balanced. Drink now through 2012. 5,500 cases imported. -JM ** Only 4 in Stock **
