Grape variety:  85% Malbec, 15% Tempranillo

Notes: Deep purple color, sweet tannins, aromas of red fruit, spice and flowers. Huge extraction and a long silky finish.

Altocedro Malbec Ano Cero is a La Consulta-terroir driven Malbec that is fresh, fruit-forward, and easy-to-drink.

This wine is the product of Altocedro's passion for creating great wines from one of the best grape growing regions in the world for the Malbec: La Consulta in Mendoz's Uco Valley. The grapes were carefully selected from mature vines (7-49 years old), fermented in small concrete tanks and 30% of the wine was aged 8 months in French oak barrels to obtain a balanced concentration of color, aromas and fruit flavors.

Food Pairing: Beef bourguignon, Stroganoff, Roast leg of lamb

Critical acclaim

James Suckling - "Plenty of ripe fruit with leather and spice character in this wine from La Consulta in Valle de Uco. Full body, fine tannins and a dried fruit, chocolate aftertaste. Slightly old style but delicious. Drink now. "
