    Winemaker's Notes:

    From now on, we decided not to publish tasting notes on our wines. We feel the wine experience is individual and subjective, and it should be our customers writing tasting notes, not us.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Piercing aromas of violet, iron and blueberry fruit are followed by a massively rich, yet amazingly pure and precise palate of boysenberry and blackberry flavors. The riveting finish is loaded with minerality and dark, velvety fruit. This is still young, with loads in reserve. Malbec. Best from 2009 through 2018. 755 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2006 Finca Altamira is deep crimson-colored with a complex aromatic array of wood smoke, spice box, mineral, espresso, black cherry, and black raspberry. Structured, opulent, and long, it will develop in the cellar for another 3-5 years and provide prime drinking from 2012 to 2021.

    The Wine Advocate

    This old-vine Malbec grows on alluvial soils in the La Consulta zone of the Uco Valley. Its ripe aromas have tremendous depth while holding elegance as well. Bright and fresh, the red fruit flavors are dense, yet the firm texture carries all that intensity with grace. Ready to serve with game, this will continue to gain complexity with another five or six years in the bottle.
