Dark chocolate

This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible deep purple red color. Loads of spice and black and red cherry aromas with notes of chocolate. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both a full mid palate and lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well.

About This Wine

    Laura Catena is a 4th generation Malbec grower. With Luca, Laura pioneered grower relations in Mendoza and discovered many small old vine Malbec vineyards that were previously going into bulk wine. The Luca team works with some of the best family vineyards in the Uco Valley to make this rich and dense example of Malbec.
  • PRODUCTION

    16 months in 60% new French oak.
  • POINTS

    95 POINTS! Tim Atkin, 2015 vintage

    "A stunning Malbec that combines fruit from the two best appellations in the Uco Valley - Paraje Altamira and Gualtallary - this is a heady, aromatic, thrillingly well-balanced red with notes of tangerine, fennel and blackberry fruit, filigree tannins and stylish oak"
