    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 Catena Alta Malbec presents a dark, opaque violet color, almost blackish in hue. The nose offers freshly ground, ripe berry fruits with layers of wild flowers, cinnamon spice and a touch of citrus. The mouthfeel is full and coating, with exceptional weight and concentration but with a soft, supple texture. The mid palate offers rich cassis and black currant fruit flavors interwoven with hints of chocolate, vanilla and black pepper. The lengthy finish shows wonderful minerality, with finely grained tannins and lively acid.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very concentrated, with dark fig and currant paste notes, but it's also pure and driven, with intense mocha, bittersweet cocoa and melted licorice notes that stretch out the long, polished finish. Really gorgeous for its density and mouthfeel. Drink now through 2013.

    Wine Spectator

    The nicely pefumed bouquet reveals wood smoke, cedar, leather, black cherry and black raspberry. On the palate it is suave, layered and richly fruity with lots of spice notes and well integrated oak, tannin and acidity.
