Catena Malbec 2020
Catena Malbec presents a deep violet color with purple reflections. This microclimate blend of four unique vineyards offers intense aromas, soft texture, and concentrated flavor. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by flavors of blueberries and blackberries with a touch of leather and cinnamon. The wine has well-integrated tannins, bright acidity, and a flinty minerality that provides exceptional length to the finish. Pair with roast turkey, grilled steak, salmon, and pasta with red sauce.
From the Uco Valley, the 2020 Malbec Catena spent eight months in barrels. Bright purple in color. The intense, nuanced nose presents notes of fresh and ripe plum with hints of pepper, violet and cedar. Smooth and expansive in the mouth, the juiciness is enhanced by gentle tannins that add depth without getting overly insistent. The 2020 is pleasant with a flavorful flow. This is a textbook Malbec with a modern twist given the moderate sweetness and increased freshness.
