- Catena Malbec Mendoza 2012 Product #29157 (In Stock)
Argentina's most reliable Malbec has been delicious for so many years in a row that it's all too easy to pass over. Don't - it's excellent!
"An intense red, showing concentrated flavors of dark plum, kirsch, dried beef and baker's chocolate flanked by notes of tobacco leaf and ginger. The powerful finish is filled with sanguine details. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points
- Catena Malbec Alta 2011 Product #29274 (In Stock)
Another great vintage for this benchmark Malbec, now called "Historic Rows" in recognition of the old vine plantings within Catena's high-elevation Mendoza vineyards.
"This shows a silky and beautiful wine with plum, spice, salt and sliced meat. Full body, with wonderful fruit and spicy, meat and berry character. A little jammy but I like it a lot. Drink or hold." James Suckling 93 points
"Meaty, minty scents accent core cassis, jammy blackberry and oaky aromas. In the mouth, this benchmark Argentinean Malbec is tight and structured, with no flab or excess weight. An exotic mix of blueberry, cassis and Middle East spices finish long, with oak-driven lemony snap. Drink through 2020."Wine Enthusiast 91 points
