Colomé Estate Malbec 2016

Member Review by puhnner:

Big and Burly Malbec - blend. Cannot remember much about it, for I had it quite a few months ago, but seem to remember that it was similar to these tasting notes from Wine Advocate...'The very showy, open and aromatic nose is very balsamic and spicy with aromas of wild herbs, especially thyme, juicy blueberries and violets. This is a ripe Malbec with good depth, concentration and balance. Soft, but with grip that is chewy and juicy.'

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
