Altocedro 'Reserva' Malbec 2008

Altocedro 'Reserva' Malbec 2008 another excellent effort


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Wine Spectator 9/30/10
A dark, loamy style, featuring hefty cocoa and espresso notes, backed by dark roasted vanilla and mulled fig fruit. This stays focused and polished though, despite the dark profile, with a long fruit- and licorice-filled finish. Should open up more with modest cellaring, too.
91 pts Wine Advocate Issue #192 Dec 2010
The 2008 Malbec Reserva was produced from vines averaging 75 years of age with indigenous yeast fermentation, malolactic in barrel, and aging for 12-15 months in new and second use French oak. The wine is opaque purple in color with an alluring nose of wood smoke, Asian spices, balsamic, black cherry, and a hint of blueberry. Ripe, savory, and sweetly-fruited in the mouth along with excellent depth and concentration, it is already revealing some complexity and enough structure to unwind for several more years. Drink this pleasure-bent effort from 2012 to 2023.
