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

The 2004 Celia Vizcarra is nearly as massive but displays a bit more elegance. It, too, will require 12ndash;15 years of cellaring. Vizcarra Ramosrsquo; two luxury cuveacute;es are named after the proprietorrsquo;s young daughters. Each was begun in the year of their birth.

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.

The 2004 Celia (named after one of the proprietorrsquo;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 4ndash;6 years and drunk through 2020.

Glass-staining purple. More serious than the Ines, offering a brooding bouquet of dark berry preserves, cola, licorice and printerrsquo;s ink. Chewy blackcurrant and cherry-cola flavors slowly open with air to offer a sweeter blackberry quality. The finish clings impressively and echoes the licorice and cherry notes. This needs some time.
