Catena Alta 2017 Historic Rows Malbec

Catena Alta Malbec 2017 shows a deep violet color, with blue reflections. The nose is elegant and complex with ripe red and black berry fruits, notes of violets and lavender and a touch of leather, spice and vanilla falvors. The palate is full and rich with soft and sweet tannins and a silky, smooth structure. Mulitple layers of rich cassis, black currant and blackberries are interwoven with hints ofl icorice and black pepper. Its lengthy finish is marked by wonderful minerality, finely grained tannins and lively acidity.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 93 Points: "The polished and developed 2017 Catena Alta Malbec has balsamic aromas and a very attractive mixture of flowers, berries and spices. It has contained ripeness for a warm vintage, with a serious profile, medium body and fine-grained tannins, with good grip. It was fermented with full clusters and matured in used French oak barrels for some 18 months. I like the austerity and grip on the palate."

Wine Spectator - 92 Points: "Well-structured, with a fine-grained texture to the lively mix of dried red berry and spice flavors. Slate and floral hints on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2025."

Wine & Spirits - 90 Points: "Alta is a blend from old-vine parcels in six of Catenaís estate vineyards, some in LuyŠn de Cuyo and others from higher altitudes, in the Uco Valley. The 2017 captures the intensity of that fruit in its dark, jammy core, surrounded by brighter, floral flavors of strawberry and hibiscus. Itís hearty but not heavy, a balanced and versatile malbec."
