Alta Vista Alto 2006

 
Item Sold Out
Wine Spectator 95
"Shows terrific intensity and drive, with a torrent of fig paste, macerated currant, boysenberry and blackberry fruit riding over dark, loamy tannins. Muscular and mouthfilling, but with riveting acidity buried deep on the lengthy finish. Unabashed in style, and very, very impressive. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. Best from 2009 through 2015."

"The winerys flagship is the 2006 Alto, a wine composed of 77% Malbec and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 15 months in new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers a super-sexy, kinky nose of wood smoke, scorched earth, wild blueberry, black raspberry, and black currant that leaps from the glass. On the palate it is elegant despite its size, with a silky smooth texture, layers of succulent fruit, savory flavors, plenty of spice, and outstanding grip and length. Give it 68 years of cellaring and enjoy it from 2015 to 2035."
