    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Altocedro Reserva grapes come from very old vineyards (65+ years) and 100% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. This wine is more complex and stronger and is geared towards a more experienced consumer, who is used to drinking full bodied wines.

    100% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    A dark and racy red, sporting a creamy mix of blackberry, cassis and dark plum fruit wrapped in silky tannins. Hints of freshly cured tobacco and spice fill the finish. Drink now through 2014. 1,667 cases made.

    The 2009 Malbec Reserva was sourced from vines averaging 75 years of age and spent 15 months in a mix of new and second-use French oak. It delivers a step up in richness from the Ano Cedro cuvee, along with greater density, succulence, and length. Plush on the palate, it conceals enough structure to evolve for another 2-3 years and will be at its best from 2012 to 2021.

    3.5 stars. Pairing with cheese was a mistake--sausage or steak would have been better.
