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 »

  • Bodega Colome Valle Calchaqui Malbec Estate 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Needed patience to open up, but once it got there it was pulling strong oak influences over some concentrated berry fruit. Coffee/toffee wood notes with a subtle pepper and plum/raisen push. Tannins are there, but the oak smoothes out the finish. It will be cool to see what the follow up vintages are like. Hope they tone down the wood and le... Read More

  • Amalaya de Colome Argentina 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very soft and smooth despite high alcohol content. Purple-ruby color with a tinge of maroon at the edges. Nose opens up with aeration, definitely vanilla and hoisin/Asian spice notes on nose and palate. Creamy with fig and dried fruit palate (no cherry/raspberry) and nice long finish. Went well with grilled chicken and veggies. A little heavy on... Read More

  • Amalaya de Colome Argentina 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Oaky, artificial is dominant. GDP says, "This wine is like a mouse trap. Nice blend of fruit and oak, with good tannins, which is the cheese. But when you try and get that cheese the trap springs and ends up tasting like crap." That is an exact quote! Not a very pleasant wine, but it was free for me. Read More

  • Amalaya de Colome Argentina 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Opaque ruby in the glass, this wine yields rather dark, decidedly dusty notes of tobacco, cigar box, Asian spiced, gamy, roasted black raspberries and vanilla on the nose with just a hint of violets. Round on entry with very soft tannins and good acidity supporting sweet flavors of balsamic herbs, wild raspberries, cocoa shavings and sweet fruit... Read More

  • Torrontes de Colomé Vino Blanco Bodega Colomé Molinos Salta 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is my absolute favorite white wine. I discovered it in Memphis, TN (Joe's Wine in Midtown) and have been searching for a second bottle since. As with any wine, the setting in which I had the wine probably had an effect- but I believe it is probably a terrific wine regardless of the setting in which it is consumed. Read More
