The 2006 Catena Alta Malbec presents a dark, opaque violet color, almost blackish
in hue. The nose offers freshly ground, ripe berry fruits with layers of wild flowers,
cinnamon spice, and a touch of citrus. The mouthfeel is full and coating, with
exceptional weight and concentration but with a soft, supple texture. The mid palate
offers rich cassis and black currant fruit flavors interwoven with hints of chocolate,
vanilla and black pepper. The lengthy finish shows wonderful minerality, with finely
grained tannins and lively acidity.
