Seeing the differences between the Appellation Malbecs in 2013 is splitting hairs. The 2013 Malbec Appellation Altamira is sourced from the alluvial terraces of the Tunuyán River in Altamira where the soils are very rich in calcium carbonate, the ideal for Altos las Hormigas in terms of elegance and minerality. The wine matured in untoasted 3,500-liter French oak foudres, like all in this range. There's more peach here compared to the florals of the Gualtallary, and it feels a little less ripe than the Vista Flores. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity and very fine tannins. It ends with a chalky minerality that sticks to your teeth. Great terroir Malbec at an incredible price. 5,532 bottles produced. - Luis Gutierrez

Lots of Altamira character of lifted and ripe fruit, raspberry and spice. Full-bodied, soft and round. Drink now.

(15% alcohol): Bright red-ruby. More primary and brisk on the nose than the Vista Flores bottling, with dark berry aromas accented by violet, licorice and bitter chocolate.

More primary and brisk on the nose than the Vista Flores bottling, with dark berry aromas accented by violet, licorice and bitter chocolate. Ripe and suave but with a youthful medicinal reserve; more primary than the Vista Flores but with no rough edges showing. Finishes with firm, smooth tannins and very good length. Ultimately sweeter on the end than the Vista Flores.
