Winemaker Notes

Shows elegant notes of spice aromas, Violets and mature blueberries. The palate has a great body, powerful but balanced. The secrets of this blend incite enjoyment without revealing itself. Dense, dark and tasty, so intriguing, with aromas of black fruit, coffee and a wonderful earthy smell. On the palate, it flows smoothly with rounded tannins complete with echoes of ripe cooked fruit.

Tasting Panel

Smooth, ripe, and rich with lovely blackberry favors; lush and juicy with length and balance.

JD 90
Jeb Dunnuck

A blend of mostly Malbec (they don't list the exact blend but it's a cellar selection), the 2016 Alma Negra M Blend is a ripe, forward, sexy wine that offers lots of black and blue fruits, underbrush, spring flowers, and graphite. With a touch of minerality, medium to full body, fine tannin, and impressive purity, it should age gracefully for at least 5-7 years.

Alma Negra Vineyard and Winery Winery Image

Ernesto Catena, the owner of Ernesto Catena Vineyards in Argentina, is the eldest son of Nicolás Catena of Catena Zapata. A 4th generation winemaker, Ernesto has traveled and lived around the world, and along the way has earned a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Economy, a Master’s in Design in Milan and a degree in history in London. Defined by many as the “bohemian” side of the Catena family, Ernesto is a tireless and avid reader, painter, art collector, horseman, polo player and archer. While president of Bodegas Escorihuela, Ernesto felt the need to produce wines that would reflect his basic beliefs: high quality, a different style from the majority of wines being made at the time, smaller volumes and a strong brand concept. In 2002, Ernesto Catena Vineyards was created to express those beliefs. 

Alma Negra means “Black Soul”, because the color of the wines made from the bonarda grape is deep and intense. The the first wines made, which where all reds, had a real “black soul” when you saw them in the glass. Ernesto also wanted to create a wine about which little was known, the composition or technical details, so that the wine was judged solely on how the taster perceived it. When the line was launched in 2006, the wines were named Misterio, and the mask on the label was a symbol for a hidden identity or mystery.
