Consistent, excellent, finessed.
Made by Argentina's pioneering Malbec family, this wine comes from fruit harvested from prestigious Lujan de Cuyo, Tupungato, Maipu and San Carlos vineyards.
Boasting excellent consistency and intensity, this vintage offers that distinct Catena succulence; wild blackberries and red currents, dried violets, grilled herbs, tobacco, bitter chocolate and espresso. Equally savoury on the palate, it has a masculine character, impressive acidity and spice and mocha flavours followed by a long tealeaf finish. .
Pair: grilled meats, hard cheeses, hearty pastas or stews or rich mushroom gnocchi.
Second Review: Dec 2018
Savoury aromas of red currents and forest berries, roasted herbs, espresso and dried violets lead to a succulent, well balanced and postured wine with a supple weight.
