The winery and vineyards of Altocedro are located in the premier region of La Consulta in the Uco Valley. Winemaker and owner Karim Mussi Saffie uses sustainable growing practices to produce limited amounts of terroir-driven wines. The vines range up to 100 years of age. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done in individual batches by hand. Fermentation occurs either in small cement tanks or in barrels, and the extract is done with a gravity flow system developed at the winery over 100 years ago. Altocedro has become synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wine. (from importer notes)
The 2015 "La Consulta Select" is a blend of 42% Malbec, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Tempranillo, and 9% Syrah from vines with an average age of 35 years. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak and displays all the lush fruit characters you would expect from a wine crafted from these varietals.
92 points, James Suckling:
"Floral and fruity with cherry and dried-strawberry aromas that follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and great brightness and focus. A blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Syrah, this is very pretty and vivid." (6/21/17)
