This Malbec has an intense inky colour with violet hues. Aromas of black fruit, cherries, white mulberry and figs combine with hints of spice and minerality. On the palate, this wine is robust and concentrated, with crisp acidity and ripe finely-grained tannins that provide structure and balance.

The raw and primary 2018 Auténtico Malbec shows the wilderness of the northern vineyards, dark, concentrated, juicy and full of wild herbs, flower and berry aromas, really showy and impressive. This is a pure expression of the grape following the Dávalos (previous owners of Colomé) tradition of unoaked wines. This matured in tank for ten months and a further ten months in bottle. I love this wine.

Bright ruby. Pungent, high-toned aromas of blackberry, minerals and licorice. Thick and mouthfilling but leavened by terrific penetrating acidity. The dark berry, wild herb, licorice and chalky mineral flavors are complemented by a chocolatey ripeness. Sweet, plush tannins saturate the entire palate, with the finish displaying explosive length. Very strong, very pure and very smooth; expressive and unique. The Dávalos family, owners of Bodega Tacuil, also owned Colomé before selling the property to Donald Hess in 2001. (this wine, made without any oak contact, represents a tribute to the old RD bottling of Bodega Tacuil)

Offers a fine-grained texture, with precise red fruit and spice flavors that are well-structured and pure-tasting. The minerally finish features some peppery notes and plenty of verve. Drink now through 2025.
