Typical of some mid-rank Argentine wines of this ilk, I find the robe very dark and inviting. The nose, however, is a bit muted for a 4 year old Cabernet of fairly exalted provenance from the Antipodes. Mostly closed with blackberry confit. Somewhat Médoc-like on entry, though without any youthful asperity - mostly bramble-berry and slightly cooked black fruit. Still, the balance is good and the smooth texture is a big plus. More old-world than new but well made and recommended. The Malbec counterpart to this wine is perhaps more interesting if more rustic...

Blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry on the nose, this full bodied, black cherry driven offering slides across the palate with balance and depth before lingering earth notes resolve into a long smooth finish. Despite its many favorable attributes this offering is a bit too straight forward for my taste and lacks the nuance of the exceptional. Straight forward wine appropriate with meat dishes, pizza and strong cheeses. 90.

Lots of fruit. Maybe plum, cassis and cherry. But nothing seems to dominate. It's just a good blend of flavors. Goes well with grilled meat. The color is a dark purple that looked more like a Syrah than a Cab.

Opaque purple color, with a sharp tone black / purple. Intense aroma of ripe black fruit with a touch of floral violets and lavender and subtle vanilla and spice leave. Voluptuous, with an initial attack of sweet black fruits, followed by an intense minerality and complex notes of chocolate and black pepper. End sweet and soft, ripe tannins and a refreshing acidity.

Nice and complex with a smooth finish. A typical South American jewel

Excellent example of an Argentinian Red! Big flavor but not heavy!

91 Points - The Wine Advocate"The aromatic array displays toasty black cherry, black raspberry and violet notes leading to a smooth-textured, layered, rich wine bordering on opulence. It manages to achieve this retaining an elegant, light-on-its-feet personality. On the palate, spice notes and a hint of chocolate emerge."91 Points - Wine Spectator "Enticing, with lots of mocha, fruitcake, raspberry and boysenberry flavors stretched over a lengthy, fleshy finish. A delicious, fruit-driven version. Drink now through 2010."

Am Gaum begeistert der Auftakt mit einer guten Fruchtfülle. Enorm Aromatisch mit gut eingebundenen kräftigen Tanninen, die besonders im Finale zu finden sind. Dezente Holznote untermalen die Fruchtigkeit des Weins, der Abgang ist sehr nachhaltig.

Purpurrot, fast schwarz. Viel Brombeerfrucht und Baumnuss in der komplexen, gut entwickelten Nase, Schokoladentarte und Nuancen von Leder. Elegante und äusserst facettenreiche Gaumenaromatik mit viel schwarzer Beerenfrucht, Heidelbeeren und schwarze Johannisbeeren, konzentriert mit subtilen Holznoten, Vanille und gut gebackenes Brot, ausgewogen und charakterstark bis ins lange Finale.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :The Catena family has conducted extensive research into the soils and microclimates of Mendoza's high altitude wine country in the foothills of the Andes mountains. At different altitudes, the family's Malbec vineyards express a unique profile of aromas and flavors: the ripe plum fruit flavors and silky texture of the Angelica vineyard (2,850' elevation); the dark fruit character and pepper notes of the La Piramide vineyard (3,100' elevation); the black cherry aromas and excellent structure of the Altamira vineyard (3,870' elevation); the explosive floral aromatics full, concentrated mouthfeel of the Adrianna vineyard (5,000'). The blend of these components creates a wine of unique character that has balance, concentration and a strong varietal identity.
