Vizcarra Celia Vizcarra 2004

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The 2006 Celia Vizcarra spent 18 months in 500-liter French oak. It shows off a complex perfume of balsam wood, pencil lead, leather, tobacco, incense, black cherry, and blueberry. Dense, layered, and muscular on the palate it has all the right stuff. It will require extended cellaring of a decade or more, so patience will be required.

Finca La Celia was founded in 1890, when Eugenio Bustos, who was later to acquire land in the Uco Valley , starting constructing the winery. His daughter, Celia Bustos, inherited the property and with her strong personality and leadership work these lands to convert them into prosperous vineyards. The Malbec produced at our winery is a clear example of the conditions offered by the Uco Valley to produce excellent wines. In the year 2000, Finca La Celia became the first foreign affiliate of the vineyard San Pedro ( Chile ). The lands were acquired by the company part of the CCU group, leader in the business of drinks (beer, wine, grappa, soft drinks, fruit juices and mineral water). It was in this way that the winery was expanded, restored and equipped with French and Italian technology. Read less

Deep ruby. Potent aromas of cassis, cherry liqueur, redcurrant, exotic spices, iron and graphite. Incredibly deep, powerfully structured wine with sweet red and dark fruit flavors laced with espresso, violet, cola, vanilla bean and white pepper. For all its concentration this comes across as almost racy, with wonderful lift and vibrancy from bright, juicy acids. On the back end, the deep, sappy blackcurrant and blueberry flavors refuse to quit. There are 160 cases of this knockout for the world, 20 of them for the U.S.

The 2004 Celia (named after one of the proprietor’s daughters) is a limited production, single vineyard wine (20 cases for the American market) was aged for 18 months in French oak. It is opaque purple-colored with an expressive nose of smoke, scorched earth, blueberry, blackberry, and licorice. This is followed by a silky-textured wine with gobs of sweet fruit and ripe tannnis. This opulent effort has a very long finish of 45+ seconds. Its hedonistic personality will allow it to be enjoyed now but it can also be cellared for 4–6 years and drunk through 2020.

The 2004 Celia Vizcarra is nearly as massive but displays a bit more elegance. It, too, will require 12–15 years of cellaring. Vizcarra Ramos’ two luxury cuvées are named after the proprietor’s young daughters. Each was begun in the year of their birth.

This dense red is austere in character, but shows depth, with mineral, earth and smoke notes over plum and sanguine flavors. This has firm structure and good balance, but just needs time. Best after 2011.

A spry, moderately sweet white, evoking honey, pineapple and vanilla pastry flavors that remain fresh and focused. Not quite the finish that the entry suggests, but attractive. Drink now through 2020.This dense red is austere in character, but shows depth, with mineral, earth and smoke notes over plum and sanguine flavors. This has firm structure and good balance, but just needs time. Best after 2011.

A bright and very pretty wine that bursts with raspberry and plum aromas. The palate is finely balanced and clean as a whistle, and in general this small-production bottling represents the region gracefully, but with some kick and power. It only gets richer and more serious with airing. Drink 2012ndash;2022.
