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.

December 2020

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.
