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.

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
