Catena Malbec 2011-Argentina, South America

$17.99

winemaker's notes:

 
The cat
ena Malbec presents a deep violet color with purple reflections. This microclimate blend of four unique vineyards offers intense aroma, soft texture and concentrated flavor. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavendar 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 provies exceptional length to the finish.
 
Pair with roast turkey, grilled steak, salmon and pasta with red sauce.
 
Critical Acclaim
 
"A dark and jammy red, with enough acidity to propel the roasted plum and wild berry compote notes. Layers of smoke, toasted spice and espresso emerge on the rich finish."
91 Points Wine Spectator
 
"Bright, full ruby-red. Slightly porty aromas of cassis, blackberry, mocha and spices. Sweet, concentrated and creamy but with enough harmonious acidity to give shape to the flavors of black raspberry, licorice and spices. This very rich, even powerful malbec finishes with building, chocolatey oak tannins and noteworthy length."
90 Points International Wine Cellar
 
"An assemblage of three different sites within Mendoza, each bringing varying but vital components to the finished wine. Shows power and guts but doesn’t go over the top, with an abundance of sweet, opulent damson and rich blackberry fruit augmented by the oak, retains balance and persistence. "
90 Points Decanter
