Bodega Colome 2013 Estate Malbec
100% Malbec | Alc: 14.5% – Big & Bold
Salta, Argentina

Winemaker’s notes:
Bright red with intense aromas of black and red fruits, showing a perfumed nose with floral and spice notes. It is fresh; it has a complex structure. It is elegant and with great personality. Made with 100% Malbec.

Critical Acclaim:
“The 2013 Malbec Estate has a similar blend of Malbec for the three zones and altitudes (1,700, 2,300 and 2,600 meters) with wines with higher acidity and a stronger tannic structure. It was bottled after 15 months in barrel (15% new), and the oak is nicely integrated. The nose might be a bit shy; there are subtle herbs, wild berries and some spices. Today I give the edge to the 2012 where I see more complexity and depth, even though this 2013 drinks very easily with its freshness. One for the table. 180,000 bottles were produced, a slightly shorter vintage from a cooler year where the selection in the blend was a little stricter”  90 Pts – The Wine Advocate

“This bursts with fresh, pure-tasting flavors of raspberry, blackberry and roasted plum, supported by firm acidity and tannins. Notes of slate and black pepper show midpalate, with a finish that offers dark chocolate accents. Drink now through 2020”  90 Pts – The Wine Spectator

“A dense and very rich red with blueberry, sliced mushroom and earth character. Full body, yet tight and reserved. Gorgeous to drink now but will improve in the next few years”  93 Pts – James Suckling
