"On the oaky side, with toasty aromas of stacked wood, smoke and black fruits lurking below the surface. The palate has the typical piercing juiciness of the 2008 vintage, with bursting flavors of pie cherry and raspberry. Minty and oaky on the finish, with snappy finishing acidity. Drink now through 2012. Imported by Cork Alliance." ~M.S.

"The Altos Estate was founded in 1995, and is now owned by a group of Italian wine professionals. Winemakers Alberto Antonini and Attilio Pagli focus specifically on Bonarda and Malbec varietals. The grapes are hand picked in vineyards located in La Consulta and Vista Flores in the Uco Valley; and Vistalba, Perdriel and Las Compuertas in Lujon de Cuyo." ~ Winery notes
