Critical Acclaim

RP93 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2016

"The unoaked 2015 Auténtico Malbec is a homage to the Colomé of yesteryear produced by the Dávalos family, the previous owners of Colomé. It’s sourced from old Malbec vines, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for some ten months in vat, including malolactic. Mr. Dávalos hates oak and never allowed any barrique in his cellar, and this wine is a tribute to his work. They are also harvesting a little earlier, looking for freshness. This is juicy and floral, with good ripeness and soft tannins with a soft texture and very good balance. This is a blend of fruit from older parral vineyards and some higher altitude vines planted at El Arenal at some 2,600 meters. They have now identified which vineyards work better for this wine, which shows the naked character of the place without the possibility to use any makeup. Authentic! 48,000 bottles produced." (93 pts.)

SP91 Wine Spectator Jun 30, 2017

"Juicy, powerful and pure-tasting, with brambly accents to the raspberry tart, dried blueberry and dark plum flavors, supported by fresh acidity and firm tannins. Drink now through 2022. 4,000 cases made." (91 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
