2011 Altocedro La Consulta Select Uco Valley
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Red Blend
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013
(a blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and syrah): Saturated black-ruby to the rim. Brooding aromas of blackberry, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate and spices are less obviously oaky than those of Altocedro's varietally labeled bottlings. Sweet, smoky and fine-grained, boasting considerable depth and power to its black fruit and saline flavors. Not overly oaky or sweet, and manages to carry its 15.8% alcohol gracefully. Saturates the palate on the deep, ripe finish, with the oak and alcohol nicely under control.
