Bold, intense Malbec from the highest vineyards on earth. Big, smooth, ripe and balanced. A Wine Spectator 2017 Top 100 wine.
Big red wine lover - this is your wine! A combination of fruit from four high altitude vineyards: La Brava (5,740'), Colomé (7,545' 150+ year old vines), El Arenal (8,530') and Altura Maxima (10,207' – the highest altitude vineyard in the world), this hand-made 100% Malbec is simply stunning. This vintage wound up on the Wine Spectator Top 100 at #18. Due to high UV exposure and large day-to-night temperature swings, high altitude fruit is unique and special. Big, bold, smooth mouth-filling flavors and intense aromas of dark berries, flowers and plum predominate, and there is a juicy purity to go with a big, clean finish and overall elegance. And this vintage has a bit more freshness and verve than the 2014. The wine sees 15 months of 10% new French oak, so the fruit, not the oak, is the star. Intense, smooth and round, this combination of bright, clean fruit and velvety power is really hard to find. Enjoy!
