External Reviews for Bodega Colomé Red Blend Calchaquies Estate
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!
Dichtes, schwärzliches Kirschrot. Intensive und komplexe Aromen schwarzer Beeren, Noten der Gewürznelke, Muskatnuss, schwarzer PfefferReich und mundfüllend, gewaltiger Körper. Seidige Tannine, langer Nachgeschmack.
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.
Very ripe, with exotic plum, fig and boysenberry fruit flavors that roll along round but deceptively focused tannins. The long, vibrant finish has a nice buried minerality to offset all the fruit. Drink now through 2010.
This high-altitude wine shows a cool, rubbery essence but also warmth, animal notes and rusticity. It's polished to a point, but also a wild ride. The palate is lightly saucy and spicy, and the fruit isn't overly defined or welcoming. But in between the folds there's power and bite.
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.
