IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Wine Advocate 93 points - As with the other varietals of the range, I also had two vintages of this to compare, starting with the older 2015 Catena Alta Malbec. It is a mixture of grapes from multiple vineyards: Angelica, La Piramide, Nicasia, Adrianna and Angelica Sur. It fermented in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels and had an elevage of some 18 months in French oak. You can notice the slightly riper year, and it does suffer a bit in comparison with the truly superb 2016 even though it’s a noteworthy expression of Malbec with great freshness for the climatic conditions of the year. 66,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2016..June/2018

James Suckling 93 points - Wonderfully fresh violets on the nose with just a hint of clove. Rich, powerful, creamy and fresh, with a long, polished finish. A serious Argentinian malbec with great balance. Drink or hold..March/2018

Wine Spectator 90 points - Finely textured, offering concentrated dark plum, cream and spice flavors that are well-structured. The finish lengthens out nicely, with minerally notes. Drink now through 2021. 5,500 cases imported. -KM.December/2018

Vinous 90 points - Medium ruby-red. Complex aromas and flavors of black raspberry, currant, licorice and bitter chocolate; not quite as black fruit in character as many Argentine Malbecs. Classic intensely flavored, saline wine with excellent density and a touch of sweetness without any impression of weight. Very classy juice--but I’d give its dusty tannins another year or so to harmonize with the wine’s fruit..July/2018

Sublime and Superb!

Having enjoyed Catena Malbec for more than 55 years, I truly love the product, its beautiful full color, its unparalleled, robust character, the innuendo of multiple elegant layers of dark flavor! Simply one of the very best Malbecs in the world and very reasonably priced from Wine Chateau. Embrace the nuance; enjoy it today; lay it down for many years; pare it with any meat of your liking. You too will have a lifetime love affair with Catena Alta Malbec!
