TASTING NOTES

"As I saw with the Cabernet, the 2013 Catena Malbec also feels fresher than the 2012. It is produced with fruit from Valle de Uco and some 20% from the Luján de Cuyo zone that fermented in a mixture of cement and stainless steel, and partly matured in barrels for some 10 months. The nose is full of violets and black cherries, and is quite perfumed. The palate has lively acidity that makes it extremely fresh, long, pleasant and easy to dink, and it cleanses your palate with the mineral-driven finish. A textbook Malbec to buy by the case. Drink or keep. This has to be one of the best vintages of this popular Malbec. The production figures are mind-boggling, as there are over one million bottles of this wine, so it should be quite easy to find." Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #220

"Dark red with ruby tones. Vibrant aromas of pomegranate, cranberry, mint, licorice, chocolate and cocoa powder. Bright and sharply delineated for Malbec, showing an exhilarating coolness to its juicy flavors of crushed plum, blackberry and raspberry. The tannins are suave, pliant and fine-grained. This very attractive Malbec will rely more on its acidity than its tannins for longevity." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
