2006 Catena Malbec

Argentinian Malbecs are becoming more and more popular everyday. This may be because it is perfect for those looking for a Californian Cabernet Sauvignon. The Catena name has been made prominent throughout Argentinian winemaking since Nicola Catena planted his first Malbec vines in the Mendoza region in 1902. Since then the Catena family has taken pride in developing the micro-climates of the high altitude Mendoza region. This particular Malbec is selected from the most concentrated grapes, has powerful aromas of black currants and plums, a palate filled with black fruit flavors with hints of dark chocolate and a smooth lengthy finish. Cellarable for 10+ years.

Rating: 9.1 out of 10
