"The Catena Malbec presents a deep violet color. This microclimate blend of four unique vineyards offers intense aromas, a soft texture, and concentrated flavor. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by flavors of blueberries and blackberries with a touch of sweet spice, and leather. The wine finishes with bright acidity, wellintegrated and silky tannins, and a flinty minerality that lingers on the palate. A wonderful complement robust red meat dishes, any agro dolce sauce, or to an earthy dish like Lamb Tagine with Dried Plums."

Wine Enthusiast
"This is quintessential Argentine Malbec. Aromas of roasted black fruits and smoke transition to a toasty, oaky palate with a spectrum of flavors ranging from herbal to jammy berry. In between are notes of tobacco, spice and molasses. "

Wine Spectator
"An intense red, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, kirsch, dried beef and baker's chocolate that are flanked by notes of tobacco leaf and ginger. The powerful finish is filled with sanguine details."
