Winemaker Notes

This robust, fruity Malbec-based wine features layers bold and approachable flavor from the interplay of the native and International varieties featured in the blend. The typically dense plum and black cherry notes of Argentine Malbec are complemented by juicy blackberry, cassis and fig flavors derived from Bonarda. Cabernet Sauvignon adds rich berry and slight herbal notes, while intriguingly spicy black pepper and blueberry notes come from Syrah.

Blend: 65% Malbec, 16% Bonarda, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
A juicy and dense malbec-based blend featuring romas of cappuccino, blackberries, black pepper and some dried herbs. Full-bodied and juicy with polished tannins and a good backbone of acidity, which follows through to a clean finish. Balanced.

Alamos, Mendoza, Argentina
Image of winery

From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catena's high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang time, preserving the fruit's full spectrum of aromas and flavors.

At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed, fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and two to four year old barrels are used to age the wines.

Image for Mendoza content section

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
