Bodega Colome 'Estate' Malbec 2011
Robert Parker 90
The 2011 Estate Malbec in reality has 8% Tannat, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit
Verdot which I believe add to the complexity of the wine, which has an intense nose of
concentrated raspberries and violets and just a hint of spicy oak. It is exuberant, with notes that
reminded me of Touriga Nacional, almost Muscat-like. The palate is medium-bodied, with
sweet tannins pleasant and supple, fresh and easy to drink. Drink 2014-2018.

" Colomes Estate Malbec is annually one of Argentinas better values. The 2011 Estate Malbec (85%) contains small amounts of Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah in its blend. It spent 15 months in barrel, 30% new American, the balance second-use French with the fruit sourced from some of the worlds most elevated vineyards. It is purple in color with a captivating nose of cedar, Asian spices, incense, violets, black licorice, espresso, and assorted back fruits. Made in a racy style with uplifting acidity, it is a beautifully proportioned offering with exceptional elegance and length. Give it several more years of cellaring and drink this fantastic value to 2024. " ~ Winery notes
About Bodega Colome
This is the furthest I've ever driven to get to a single winery. We drove from Salta over to Cachi and then Molinos. You absolutely need to allow time for the drive across - it's spectacular scenery and you don't want to be rushing through that. I laughed at everyones dirt caked car comments - this is almost in the adventure tourism category!
The winery itself is in an amazing location. The wines are fantastic and their Torrentes is one of the best we tried in Argentina. We had a lovely lunch and then the tasting and James Turrell Museum - an absolute must do.
The tasting is the only thing that has stopped me from giving Colome top marks. I am a wine tourist and the tasting is on the lean side. People who drive here are not your average wine drinker so to have a high price tag to taste a few wines after such a long trip was a bit unexpected. Most people will buy the wine, but not if you don't let them taste it or charge a very high tasting fee. There are many other equally good producers who are a bit more generous so this is possibly something to work on for Colome.
Overall however, I am more than pleased I came here - it was an overall adventure and experience, both getting there and experiencing the facilities.
The gem in the middle of no where.
