From the Winemaker
For over four generations, the Catena family has grown vines in the foothills of the Andes mountains. Catena Malbec is sourced from the family's historic high-altitude vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina. From the marriage of these historic parcels emerges a wine of unique character that has natural balance, concentration and a distinct varietal identity.
The 2010 Catena Malbec shows a deep violet color with purple tones. The nose offers concentrated aromas of ripe red and dark fruits with delicate floral notes like violets and lavender, and traces of vanilla and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, with blueberry and blackberry notes and a touch of leather and cinnamon. The finish presents well-integrated tannins with bright acidity and a flinty minerality that gives the wine exceptional length.

Over time, the Catena Malbec quality has increased to the point it is one of the most respected and appreciated Malbecs on the market today. For those who love enjoying Malbecs, they know this is a true treasure.
