There are two separate wines from appellations in the Uco Valley, one of them the 2014 Malbec Appellation Altamira that comes from one appellation that has been officially named Paraje Altamira. This is a delicate Malbec from a low-yielding vintage, with up to 30% less grapes than the average, due to frost. The vines are located at 1,200 meters altitude on stony and chalky soils and the grapes fermented in small cement vats with indigenous yeasts, with punching down of the cap but without any pumping over. The wine matured in untoasted 3,500-liter French oak foudres for 18 months and was kept in bottle for one year before being released. Even if the foudres are the same as those used for the Gualtallary, the oak feels more present here. There are some spicy aromas over a core of red fruit, and notions of wet stones. There is more volume here than in the Gualtallary, and the tannins are more present, it fills your mouth and leaves an earthy sensation. Great price for the quality it delivers. 5,778 bottles were filled in January 2016. Dec 2016, www.robertparker.com
Bright medium ruby. Pungent, very dark aromas of blackberry pastille, licorice, violet, musky resin and bitter chocolate. Powerful, dense and fine-grained but not at all overly sweet. The black fruit and sexy spice flavors are complemented by bitter chocolate, leather and herbs but for all its muscularity and thickness it retains a light touch. Finishes broad and palate-saturating, with terrific clarity and length. A splendid example of Malbec, conveying a suggestion of creamy depth that I find captivating, not to mention strong terroir character from a topnotch site. This is sweet enough to give early pleasure but has the stuffing to age. Dusty tannins saturate the tongue. Jul 2017, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2018-2026
