"This is fabulous on the nose, offering licorice, violets, blackberries and blueberries. So fresh and complex. Full body and ultra-fine tannins with wonderful definition. Fantastic length. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and malbec Drinkable now, but better after 2022."

95 Luis Gutierrez - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Last but not least, the 2015 Alto has the lowest alcohol of the three vintages I tasted side by side (2013 and 2014 where the other two), as ripeness seems to have been coming down gradually over the years. Vinification and élevage have not changed (concrete and 14 months in new oak), but this feels fresher and better balanced, with the oak more integrated with the fruit. This is the freshest of the three years, not a surprise, really. It has power and concentration, balance and elegance, and it has more tannin than you think, because there is great harmony between acidity, tannin and fruit. This should develop nicely in bottle. 6,760 bottles were filled in March 2018."

Product Description:

"Alta Vista’s iconic wine, represents the benchmark among Argentine wines, crafted from the highest quality grapes from small vineyard parcels with low yields. Hand-picked grapes go through a double selection process on a sorting table. Alto is vinified in small, epoxy-lined concrete tanks which allow a gentle, precise vinification and extraction of polyphenols to produce an elegant wine. It is aged 14 months in new French oak barrels and at least 12 months in bottle.

The wine is deep ruby in color with complex aromas of black fruits, such as blackberries, spices, and chocolate. On the palate, the wine is elegant with silky tannins and a long intense persistency." - Winery
