#58 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
The 2009 Catena Malbec presents a dark, violet color with deep black tones. This microclimate blend of four unique vineyard sites offers intense aromas with a soft generous texture and concentrated flavors. Angelica vineyard lends ripe plum and chocolate flavors with a very soft, supple mouthfeel. Altamira vineyard brings a core of black currant and cassis, with excellent structure and length. La Piramide vineyard offers blackberry fruit with a slight earthy tone and notes of spicy black pepper. Finally, the Adrianna vineyard lends exceptional concentration with explosive floral aromatics. Together they give birth to a complex blend of aromas and flavors - a wine with excellent concentration, balance and freshness.

AMAZING Malbec! Deep flavors of plum and chocolate dance on your palate...i look forward to opening another bottle of this wine in the future
this was a pleasant suprise, very smooth and silky, alittle light for a cab, but very easy to drink and the price can't be beat!
