/ Maturing, with fig, coffee and bittersweet ganache flavors backed by hints of roasted vanilla bean and cedar. This is still fleshy on the finish, with dark fruit and spice notes lingering.

Numina 2004 - WineSkinny/ A blend of Malbec (70%) and Merlot, this blend from Argentina offers and interesting combination of dried black currant, espresso and fruitcake notes that mingle on a slightly dusty finish that picks up a touch of dark chocolate.

Numina 2004 - 90 Points, Wine Advocate/ The alluring bouquet reveals pain grillé , mineral, plum, blueberry, and black cherry. This is followed by a full-bodied, plush wine with layers of flavor and excellent grip.

/ “Good deep medium ruby. Sexy oak spices lift the aromas of black raspberry, plum and violet; shows a distinct note of blackberry pastille. Supple and superripe but juicy, with the candied berry sweetness carrying through on the palate. This boasts excellent depth and freshness – not to mention considerable immediate appeal. Finishes with broad tannins and lingering sweetness.”

In the remote upper reaches of Argentina’s Uco Valley on the eastern slopes of the Andes, Bodegas Salentein produces a remarkable collection of wines from vineyards planted at some of the highest elevations on the planet. From this lofty outpost, 65 miles south of the bustling city of Mendoza, Argentina’s winemaking capital, Bodegas Salentein (Sah-len-tyne) has started to forge an international reputation for its fine wines. Each year, growing numbers of curious wine lovers are drawn to this spectacular location, intent on discovering and experiencing the beauty and ethos of Bodegas Salentein for themselves. Bodegas Salentein is a wine destination like no other. Established in the late 1990s, Salentein is a privately-owned estate of almost 5,000 acres, of which 1,124 acres are planted to vine. The property includes a world-class winery and cellars, a 125-acre nature preserve, the showpiece Killka Center for Culture and the Arts, a nearby lodge (the Posada Salentein, offering an elegant and relaxed retreat into nature), and the landmark Chapel of Gratitude, a non-denominational chapel of ascetic loveliness, built using ancient local stonework techniques. Production Area The malbec grapes were grown in the estate vineyards Finca El Portillo and Finca La Pampa. Vineyards at different elevations planted in well-drained shallow soils of the alluvial-stony type contributed to the distinctive character of this wine. Grape Varieties 70% Malbec, 30% Merlot Vinification The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning and placed in 18 kg-plastic bins. Upon arrival in the winery, a cluster selection and soft de-stemming were performed, without breaking the berries. From there, they were placed in the tank, without using pumps, where cold maceration was performed at 8 C to 10 C for 5 days, with the berries virtually intact. After cold maceration, select yeasts were added and fermentation started in a controlled manner for 10 days. The must was pumped over and the cap was manually punched down very softly until the end of fermentation. Subsequently, maceration continued for 20 more days. After this stage, the wine was immediately racked to new and second-use French oak barrels, where malo-lactic fermentation took place. Color Bright purplish color with great intensity and depth Bouquet Sweet aromas of ripe red raspberries and dark and delicious plums Taste Perfectly rounded, with excellent structure, balanced acidity, and a long finish Alcohol 15% Serving Suggestions Enjoy with grilled steaks, roasts and pasta in richly flavored sauces

Numina 2004 - 90 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Malbec with 30% Merlot; Numina starts off with dark mineral and crude-oil aromas that give way to floral scents and later flavors of cherry, blackberry, chocolate and pepper. One of Salentein's best wines to date.
