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.
91 Points - Wine Spectator "Lush and rich, featuring figpaste, crusted plum and dark blueberry flavors, with licorice and dark chocolate notes."Winemaker's notes: The color is deep, dark red with a magenta hue. This wine is layered on the nose with violets, black fruits, clove, and white pepper followed by flavors of blackberries, allspice and cassis. It is an elegant and rich wine with mouth coating texture. Subtle French oak and toast flavors are well balanced and fully integrated through the mid-palate and well into the finish, which is long and round. It pairs well with steak, cassoulet, duck, venison and other hearty fare, including strong and sharp cheeses.This Colom Malbec is produced mainly from pre-phylloxera vines planted in 1854. Bodega Colom vineyards are bio-dynamically and sustainably farmed at an altitude of 5,500 to 8,500 feet and are believed to be the highest vineyards in the world. The sandy and alluvial soils yield small crops and produce deeply colored and concentrated wines which capture the soul of this distinct terroir.Our Estate Wines represent the unique character of cooler climate Argentine Malbec, the country's signature red grape. Grown in the northern province of Salta at high elevations, the grapes and wines express bright fruit profiles, while retaining acid and tannin for structure, a combination rare in Argentina. Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Syrah and Petit Verdot are blended for complexity, structure, and a rich, supple mouthfeel to produce a truly remarkable wine.
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.
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.
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!
