CATENA CATENA - Alta Malbec - 2015

CATENA Alta Malbec 2015

See the wine detail page

91 Points

Catena Alta is a mix of historic rows within the Catena family estate vineyards, scattered from Lujan de Cuyo to the southern Uco Valley. Dense black plum, blackberry with licorice/mineral undertones and perfectly plump tannins. A stylish, highly polished red wine with the perfect freshness and length for asado (barbecue) beef. As enticing as it can be now, this will age effortlessly for 7 to 10 years.
