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.

Dark purple; almost opaque in the glass. Full-bodied, with an extremely lush texture that coats the palate like a blackberry creamsicle. Although ripe, this Malbec has muscular tannins and balanced acidity, providing lift to the massive layers of fruit. The long, complex finish packs in the berry flavors. Yum city!

Lush and rich, with layered fig paste, crushed plum and dark blueberry fruit mingling with extra licorice snap and dark chocolate notes. Rich, but not overbearing. Nicely embedded acidity carries the finish.

Bodega Colomé, located in the Calchaqui Valley of the Salta province, dates to 1831. The property was purchased by Hess Family Estates in 2001, with Thibaut Delmotte currently handling winemaking duties. The blend comprises 85 percent Malbec, 8 percent Tannat, 5 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 2 percent Syrah; some of the Malbec grapes come from vines ranging in age from 90 to 150 years, with the remainder from three younger estate vineyards.

Medium ruby. Intriguing aromas of cherry, blackberry, blood orange, violet, road tar, smoked meat and pepper; this is more syrah-like than a lot of syrahs. Quite suave and fine-grained on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity and enticing floral lift giving a juicy quality to the musky, slightly reduced flavors of blackberry, violet and smoked meat. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins and impressive length.
