Calchaqui Valley, Salta. Colome is the oldest winery in Argentina (180 years) and home to the highest vineyards in the world (3100m). Before Malbec, there was Bonarda.  This grape used to be the most planted grape variety in Argentina until it all changed in the 80's. Part of it's issue is that due to it's tendency to crop high, many renditions of this grape variety leant towards the volume/commercial side of things.  However, in the hands of quality minded producers it can produce charming and deft wines. This wine is serious and shows blue fruit up front and varietal mineral/graphite mid palate. PWS
