    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 vintage of this wine was ranked #58 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2011

    The 2010 Catena Malbec shows a deep violet color with purple tones. The nose offers concentrated aromas of ripe red and dark fruits with delicate floral notes like violets and lavender, and traces of vanilla and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, with blueberry and blackberry notes and a touch of leather and cinnamon. The finish presents well-integrated tannins with bright acidity and a flinty minerality that gives the wine exceptional length.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Catena Malbec is also a blend of four vineyards in Lunlunta, Agrelo, Altamira and Gualtallary at different altitudes and includes some whole cluster fermentation (about 20% of the blend.) It has a pellucid bouquet with tangible minerality: notes of blackberry, strawberry cheesecake, a touch of cassis and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry. The acidity is crisp and lends tautness towards the succulent finish, which bestows blackberry, black olive and loganberry fruit. This is a finely crafted, feminine Malbec.

    Smooth Earthy. Berry Cocoa - rich. Fills your palette with the vineyard fruit and earth ... Chocolate and barrel overtones in the finish. I love this wine. And what an impressive Vineyard...

    Good for a table wine. Good with a steak but wouldn't enjoy as much on it's own!

    Vile. Almost no bouquet, and the taste was flatter than a bottle of three dollar Walmart wine. A horrible value, and a bad surprise.
