2006 Altamira Navigato Family Selectiond Reserve

Red Blend-South America-Argentina

This wine has an intense red and violet color with a complex aromatic palette and spicy notes such as black and red pepper, sweet spices, floral notes of violets and red fruits. The taste is sweet, with great concentration, body and density. There is a good balance between fruit and oak. The tannins are soft and round and the finish is long and elegant with flavors of chocolate, smoke and tobacco.

Medium ruby-red. Dark cherry, currant, licorice and minerals on the nose, plus an intriguing whiff of goat cheese. Suave, sweet and juicy but extremely unevolved, with pungent dark berry and floral flavors given great energy by perfectly integrated acidity. Still youthfully tight but already fills the mouth with perfume. Finishes extremely long and aromatic, with building tannins, a suggestion of espresso and a wonderful light touch.

We harvested the Malbec in early April. The Malbec Reserve comes almost entirely from our 14 year old vines at our La Consulta vineyard. We added small amounts of grapes from our 60+ year old vines at our La Consulta vineyard, and small amounts from our first harvest grapes at the Vistaflores vineyard. 2009 was an excellent year for Malbec, and our very low yields, 5,120 kilos per hectare (2.25 tons per acre) resulted in very good fruit.
