The essence of Argentinian wine. Rich, great acidity and minerality.

Soft tannin with rounded finish. Been opened for 2 days and still excellent

Very balanced and expressive wine. A lot going on and very well made. I thought it was beautiful but thought it seemed to be lacking some soul. Is perfect ripeness perfect? Delicious as hell though

Rich, decadent, but with fine grained tannin, and hints of smoke, cedar and graphite. Excited to taste this but anticipate the increased use of Cabernet in the future!

This 75% Cab/25% Malbec blend is made from a plant by plant selection of rows within Catena's high altitude vineyards, and only made in outstanding years. Red ribbons are tied around each chosen vine. Young, but S-E-X-Y.

Not too shabby...but a little underwhelming, especially considering the price point.
