2007 ALTOCEDRO RESERVA MALBEC LA CONSULTA
"Ripe and very well-focused, with a rock-solid core of blackberry, fig and raspberry ganache flavors layered with alluring cocoa powder, incense and mesquite notes. The long, racy finish has great underlying acidity, allowing the rather fleshy structure of the wine to appear seamless. Drink now through 2011. 500 cases made." -92 points Wine Spectator
"The vines are 3,150 feet above sea level and are between 49-67 years old. The soil is sandy and stony. The grapes are hand harvested in the middle of April. The grapes were destemmed and put into tank by gravity. Wild yeasts are used during fermentation and lasts for a period of 9 days, including 4 daily pump overs and 3 total delestages."
"Altocedro was born in 1998 with the purchase of an ancient winery- surrounded by 17 cedros (cedar trees)- in the district of La Consulta, Vale de Uco, Mendoza. Karim Mussie Saffi, owner and winemaker of Altocedro, together with his family, have been a part of the industry for 30 years. The family was one of the first pioneers int he country to export viticultural products."

"Winemakers Helene Garcin and Patrice Leveque have coaxed a ton of character from 70-year-old Malbec and Cabernet vines, and the result is juicy but dark, with asphalt and tar aromas sitting in front of tight but generous black fruit (cassis and blackberry). Finishing notes of coffee, mocha and char leave you happy." -93 Points Wine Enthusiast
"The 2003 Poesia is an elegant, medium-bodied effort displaying similar white chocolate and spice box characteristics, but neither the concentration nor intensity of its younger sibling. Black cherry, currant, licorice, and smoke characteristics emerge from this polished, elegant 2003. Consume it over the next 5-6 years. (June 2005)" -90 points Robert Parker
"A fine effort but not as good as the 2005 and 2006. Recommended but no tasting note given. Bodegas Poesia is owned by Bordeaux proprietors Helene Garcin and Patrice Leveque, with Leveque doubling as winemaker with consultation from Dr. Alain Raynaud. (December 2007)" -90 points- Jay Miller- Wine Advocate
"Ruby-red. Blackberry liqueur, black cherry, licorice, minerals and oaky torrefaction on the nose. Dense, sappy and clean; a big, powerful, dry wine with superripe black fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Doesn't quite have the briskness of the 2002, but there's more mid-palate ripeness to support the solid tannic structure and the finish is sweeter. This may merit an even higher rating with three to five years of additional bottle aging." -90 points- Stephen Tanzer- International Wine Cellar
