The 2012 Altimus is a Malbec-based blend from Cafayate with 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc fermented with indigenous yeasts in a combination of barriques, stainless steel tanks and oak vats where the wines aged for 12 months. The different wines are blended and matured for a further six months in barriques. It has minty notes, very balsamic, hinting on eucalyptus, with some herbal aromas and a full body and plenty of fine-grained tannins. Another powerful blend from Salta. 6,700 bottles were filled in December 2014. Rating: 94

A red with a linear seriousness that gives the wine form and verve. Full to medium body, silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Plenty of blackberry and stone aftertaste. Well crafted. 61% malbec, 25% cabernet sauvignon and 14% cabernet franc.
