Decanter:

"Elegant fragrances of boysenberries, cherries, herbs, mint and pepper. Remarkable quality and balance here, with high structure on the palate, fine oak integration, juicy yet firm tannins, vibrant spicy fruits and an amazing freshness and minerality. A superb Malbec."

Tim Atkin, MW:

"Made from 60-year-old vines situated in the cooler, lower part of La Consulta, this shows the red and black fruit sweetness that's a hallmark of the Catena reds, supported by fineboned tannins, deftly handled French oak and plenty of texture. The alcohol is appealingly restrained, too."

Product Description:

"Catena Malbec Appellation La Consulta is composed of 100% Malbec blended from vineyards of La Consulta district in San Carlos. The result is a wine with a pure expression of a unique terroir. 35-year-old vines gives red and black fresh fruits flavors, sweet texture and character. Cold nights lend bright, crisp acidity and the intense sunshine gives explosive floral aromatics and concentrated structure.

The Catena Malbec Appellation La Consulta shows a dark violet color with deep purple tones. The nose offers aromas like red fruit and ripe, concentrated dark berries with fresh herbs and floral notes like lavender and violets, some traces of vanilla and tobacco. The mouthfeel is rich, with raspberries and blueberries, spices notes and a touch of mocha. The finish presents soft and well-structured tannins with bright, crisp acidity that gives the wine exceptional length." - Importer
