'A textbook Malbec to buy by the case’ - Luis Gutierrez – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
Opaque black dark red colour with a bright dark crimson red hue. Lifted aromas of ripe dark cherries, liquorice and blackcurrant are overlaid by delicate violet infusions with scorched earth and spice also present. Medium weight and quite juicy the palate is filled with ripe dark cherries, plum and liquorice over a background of spicy vanillin oak and light earth. Fine grained tannins. Good length with a medium to long aftertaste of ripe dark cherries, dark plum, liquorice, spicy vanillin cedar and earth. A very quaffable and flavoursome Malbec.
Cellar 4-5 years.
As I saw with the Cabernet, the 2013 Catena Malbec also feels fresher than the 2012. It is produced with fruit from Valle de Uco and some 20% from the Luján de Cuyo zone that fermented in a mixture of cement and stainless steel, and partly matured in barrels for some 10 months. The nose is full of violets and black cherries, and is quite perfumed. The palate has lively acidity that makes it extremely fresh, long, pleasant and easy to dink, and it cleanses your palate with the mineral-driven finish. A textbook Malbec to buy by the case. Drink or keep. This has to be one of the best vintages of this popular Malbec. The production figures are mind-boggling, as there are over one million bottles of this wine, so it should be quite easy to find.
