    Colomé 1831 Malbec
    James Suckling, April 2020

    "This has a deep and dark, purple-fruit nose with violets and brambly dark plums pervading the palate. Very rich in flavor. Drink over the next five years."

    Colomé 1831 Malbec
    Vinous, October 2020

    "Made with grapes from pre-phylloxera parral vines between 100 and 150 years old at 2,300 meters above sea level, this Malbec is an intense blackberry color in the glass. The nose presents ripe fruit, a hint of flesh and clear woody notes (from the 18 months spent in barrels); grape syrup is the dominant aroma. Fleshy on the palate, with mild tannins, it makes an indulgent, rich entrance, and at 15.5% alcohol it’s almost a port, with a well-defined high-altitude character."
