Colomé Malbec

Posted by

FullSizeRenderColomé was a wine I was introduced to at a wine tasting and have been suggesting to friends and family ever since. Malbec excels in a warm, dry climate and in return gives an exceptional red wine with spicy aromas and succulent texture. But what makes Colomé so different than the rest of malbecs sitting on our shelf at Lighthouse? Colomé comes sustainably farmed vineyards that are growing some of the highest elevation Malbec in the world! Colomé is a combination of fruit from three different vineyards: La Brava sits at 5,740 ft and yields very concentrated fruit, Colomé vineyard sits at 7,500 ft and adds the wine’s complexity and weight, while El Arenal Vineyard towers at 8,500 ft giving the wine elegance and freshness. Colomé consists of a malbec base with 8% Tannat, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, which only adds to the complexity of the wine. This malbec lends a nose of concentrated raspberries and spices and a medium bodied palate with sweet tannins. This wine is fresh, supple, and easy to drink making this signature red varietal from Argentina something you’ll be going back for over and over again!
