Bodegas Alma Negra M Blend 2013
Dense, dark and rich with an intriguing untamed wildness, develops aromas of dark fruits, coffee, graphite and petrichor -that wonderful earthy smell that happens when the raindrops hit the ground. On the palate, it flows smoothly with full round tannins and lingers for a long time with echoes of dark ripe fruit and warm espresso.
Through many business encounters in Argentina, Alex Bartholomaus and Ernesto Catena discovered they were kindred spirits when it comes to beauty and wine. They decided to collaborate on a wine that would symbolize many of the different thing in which they believe. Their approach to the task was to not solely focus on the wine, but to also reminisce about the past year. They talked about the weather, family, polo, great meals and travel. Before they knew it, many layers of beauty were united into one wine - Alma Negra. Alma Negra literally means "dark soul" and represents the depths of beauty in the shadows of our souls.
