Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2015 Product #31498 (In Stock)
Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2015 Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2015

Every vintage, just another great wine from Nicolas and Laura Catena. Lightly oaked, very fresh, loaded with fruit.

"Bright gold-tinged yellow. Much deeper, riper and richer than the basic 2014 Mendoza Chardonnay, offering sweet stone fruit and apple flavors lifted by saline minerality. This dense Chardonnay shows glyceral warmth but finishes with noteworthy lift."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

DV Catena Historico Tinto 2014 Product #31986 (In Stock)
DV Catena Historico Tinto 2014 DV Catena Historico Tinto 2014

In the 1930s, Laura Catena's grandfather, Don Domingo Vicente, was famous for his dark, deep, powerhouse reds. Laura makes this wine in his honor, an intense blend of Malbec and Petit Verdot from high altitude vineyards.  It's explosively aromatic and flavored, with super-ripe raspberry and plum fruit wrapped in generous, rich, vanilla, sassafras, chocolate and herb.  The tannins are cloaked by the voluptuous fruit, making this delicious on its own and surprisingly able to age.

Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014 Product #31503 (In Stock)
Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014 Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014

From a new line highlighting the unique character of different parts of Argentina's Mendoza Valley.  This is delicious and pure, especially with an hour of air. 

"From a lower part of Uco Valley, featuring cooler nights than Lunlunta as well as more clay in the soil. Bright red-ruby. Initially reduced nose cleared to reveal cassis and cocoa powder aromas lifted by a floral high note. Very ripe and nicely sweet, but with well-integrated acidity and soil salinity giving the wine a light touch. Winemaker Vigil told me he did more carbonic fermentation for Malbec in 2014 as he wanted less extraction, but this is still in a firmly tannic style--not to mention backward for a wine made this way."  Vinous (Tanzer) 91 points

Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014 Product #31987 (In Stock)
Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014

A GREAT burger Cab, this is loaded with rich fruit and spice in a plushly textured wine that finishes with a deep chew of ripe fruit.

"From vines planted in 1973; cropped at one cluster per shoot. Bright, dark red. Ripe yet cool aromas of cassis, licorice and menthol. Supple, spicy and slightly medicinal; in a rather Old World style for a Catena wine but still with lovely fruit sweetness. The deep clay soil stayed cool in 2014 but the fruit was not affected by rot, according to Vigil. Began a bit clenched, with the acids and tannins out of sync, but harmonized nicely as it opened in the glass."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points
