Mas Cancolome 'Rosadenc' 2010

Member Review by WinePleasures:

Cotton candy and strawberry ice cream dominate on the nose, cranberry andy pomegranate flow with just a touch of light acid on the tip of the tongue. Medium dry but leaves you feeling content afterwards, like being wrapped in a blanket of fresh strawberries. The label also has a great design reminisent of the old automatic stensil machines that produce ornate patterns. Drink as an aperitif or on the hottest of hot days.

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
