92 Points, Wine Advocate - The fresh, floral and expressive 2016 Catena Malbec blends grapes from different parts of Mendoza: Lunlunta, Agrelo, Altamira El Cepillo and Gualtallary. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for an average of 12 months. It's straight and a little austere but has deep flavors. Superb quality for the price and volume.
91 Points, James Suckling - This is a firm and silky red with blueberry and blackberry character. Some stone, too. Medium body, fresh acidity and a juicy finish.
90 Points, Jeb Dunnuck - The base 2016 Catena Malbec comes from multiple high elevation sites and was brought up in 34% new French and American oak barrels. It offers a vibrant, juicy, undeniably delicious style as well as terrific notes of black raspberries, wild strawberries, and spring flowers. Upfront and ready to go, it has an outstanding mix of both freshness and richness and is straight up high-quality Malbec.
The Catena 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 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.
