Viñedos Altamira Valley 2010, a great Uco´s Value under 10 bucks
Viñedos Altamira Valley, blend 2010, By Vistaflores State, USD 8-10
A 65% merlot from Altamira district (San Carlos Department) and some Cabernet sauvignon and Franc
from Vistaflores District (Tunuyan Departament) in Uco Valley.
Beautiful red, sweet ,ripe and balanced keeping a great attraction to the palate.
Nice black little berries with a toach of sweet bell pepper all perfumed with chocolate and tabacco from oak.
Not a superpremium concentration even though the streght is quite appropiate.
I´d say an 87 point red that being from Uco adds a plus to 89 points. Great value. Probably better 2 to 4 years old when the fruit core is still strong.
