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

Bright saturated ruby. Pungent, high-toned aromas of blackberry, maraschino cherry, black pepper and violet. Sharply delineated, youthfully imploded but not hard, displaying explosive inner-mouth perfume and energy to the very pure dark fruit and bit... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Tasting Notes:

Per bottle label: very intense and dark colour. Complex and strong nose of cherries, blackberries, white pepper and violet. Fine and elegant in the mouth; big concentration, ending with round and elegant tannins.
