    Winemaker's Notes:

    Shows complex black fruit aromas, with spice and chocolate notes. The flavors are concentrated, yet elegant and expressive, with silky tannins and a long, intense finish.

    As with any great wine, Alto will show at its best when served with the finest foods that are simply prepared. A filet mignon or Chateaubriand grilled medium-rare are perfect, as are lechazo, roast suckling baby lamb or grilled chuletas de cordero, lamb chops.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The flagship 2009 Alto is a blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged separately in new French oak for 22 months prior to blending. This purple effort displays a superb nose of toasty oak, mineral, exotic spices, and wild berries. Ripe, savory, concentrated, and impeccably balanced, this seamless wine will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and offer prime drinking from 2016 to 2029, if not longer.

    The Wine Advocate

    This is a dark, ambitious red, displaying layered flavors of crushed plum, cassis and boysenberry, framed by judicious toasty oak, smoke and espresso notes and silky tannins through the long finish. For fans of the powerful style. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2015.
