"85% Malbec, 15% Tempranillo aged for 12 months in oak, deeply saturated blue-purple color attests to the wine's power and concentration, and the flavor is pure ripe berry, plum, with a nuance of sweet tobacco. The tannins are rounded, lingering generously into a rich mouth-filling finish."
"Limited production with sustainable growing practices make the Altocedro wines a cult-type wine in Argentina. Winemaker Karim Mussi Saffie focuses on producing terroir-driven wines. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand using no machinery in the process. The vines range up to 70 years of age, with only 1,600 plants per acre, and strict harvesting of only 1.2 kg of grapes per vine. The extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago. 14.9% alc."
"91 pts ... Big and rich-tasting, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, dried blackberry and dark currant, flanked by luscious Asian spice notes. Very creamy as well, offering a plush, open-textured finish of dark chocolate and mocha."
