Mendoza Malbec 2010
Magnum (1.50 Liter)
The Catena family has been an institution of Argentine wine since patriarch Nicola planted his first vines in 1902. His grandson Nicolas has been credited with modernizing the country's wines and sharing the bounty of Mendoza's high altitude vineyards with the world. This 100% Malbec is sourced from these vineyards, boasting concentrated aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, plum, violets, vanilla and mocha. Full-bodied and rich, it has fine tannins and a complex, lengthy finish. Enjoy this powerful Magnum with barbecued meats and aged cheeses.

"A pure exercise of blending a selection of available wines from this painstaking working method. It feels riper than the Alta Cabernet, quite dark, with aromas of ripe plums, blackberries and a touch of spices, but with air the nose comes back with a strong violet note."
