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 Read more »

  • Colome Malbec Estate Calchaqui Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Color very dark red, bordering on black. Nose of fresh, ripe, cool berries with spice and a mild gamey-ness. On the attack fruit was ripe not sweet with a hint of meat (game). In the mouth dark, berry fruit, medium body, fuzzy tannins, a bit astringent. Finish about 4 seconds with nut oil flavor. Overall a nice wine, but probably needed d... Read More

  • Bodega Colome Valle Calchaqui Malbec Estate 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Malbec had to leave Bordeaux to find its true calling in Argentina. Maybe it loves heights? Colome's is grown at 8600 feet, a great argument. Ripe New World fruit balanced with Old World structure. Read More

  • Bodega Colome Valle Calchaqui Malbec Estate 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Up until I tried this wine, I was pretty luke-warm on Malbecs but we tried this with japanese-style shabu shabu the other week with shredded raddish in ponzu sauce and the result was amazing as the ponzu sauce made flavors of the wine jump out against the thin slices of prime rib. Read More

  • Bodega Colome Estate Malbec Smart Buy 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A great full bodied wine, packed with fruit flavors of blackberry, persimmon and cherry, with just a little oak and tobacco in the finish. Enjoy hearty mouthfulls with a roast beef crusted in sea salt, rosemary and coarse black pepper, or a venison stew. Sip with very dark chocolate. A very good value. Read More
