This wine is the product of our passion for creating great wines from one of the best grape growing regions in the world for the Malbec: La Consulta in Mendoza´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. Drink immediately or age 3 to 7 years.

Wine AdvocateI encounter a lot less Tempranillo in Argentina than I expected, and the 2013 Año Cero Tempranillo from Altocedro is one of the few varietals there. For some reason most of the Spanish grapes from Mendoza seem to come from La Consulta. The Año Cero line ferments in cement and has a partial aging (30% of the wine) in French oak for 8-10 months. It has a cherry-driven nose, quite clean with nicely-integrated oak, which certainly stands out among so many Malbecs. The clean palate is medium-bodied and has nice acidity and supple flavors. 27,000 bottles produced.
