Bright and intense in color with beautiful aromas of blackberries, red fruits and exotic floral notes, this wine delivers aromatics that entice the senses. A full lush entry of ripe and rich black fruit surrounds spiced oak notes and hints of pepper.Fresh acidity supports big, bold tannins and wonderful complexity.

Colomé’s estate Malbec is sourced from four different sites - La Brava, El Arenal, Altura Máxima and Colomé itself - and is a wonderfully vibrant, youthful red with intense violet and lavender aromas, subtle vanilla spice and vivid acidity. 2019-24.  TIM ATKIN

Brimming with blueberry, violet and bitter chocolate notes, this is an extravagant yet very fresh and well-structured expression of Salta malbec. If you can give it until 2020, then the bold, dry tannins will soften and may make it more elegant.  JAMES SUCKLING

The 2016 Malbec Estate is a blend of grapes from their four terroirs at 1,750, 2,300, 2,700 and 3,111 meters in altitude. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for 18 months in French oak barrels, 10% of them new. All Salta wines have intensity and ripeness, and this is no exception. But the challenge is to find elegance and balance, which this one does nicely within its XL style. It is dark and heady yet harmonious. 180,000 bottles produced.  ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE
