A deep inky purple color with very long legs. The nose is rich with tomato leaf, licorice, damp earth, and spicebox. The description sounds unappealing, but the bouquet is quite enticing. In the mouth, a subtle, yet healthy acidity gives the wine focus. Lush tastes of ripened blueberry and blackberry, along with a smokey edge round out the palate. The finish has impressive length fading slowly into the background. While the nose gives the wine a deep, slow, brooding feel, in the mouth it is lighter, due to the acidity, and seems to have a fruity sweetnees. The brooding feel slowly grows as the wine fades with the finish. A better than average Colome Malbec, but a step below the 2005 vintage. That's still seriously good.
