External Reviews for Catena Alta Malbec
Ripened to a decadent richness, this is focused on sweet black fruit flavor and exotic spicy aromas. It feels huge, with a concentration of black cherry fruit, its syrup-like texture tamed by acidity. Blended from several vineyards in the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo, this is finely crafted in an international style.
Deep red. Classy, Medoc-like aromas of smoky currant, licorice, flowers and graphite. Intensely flavored and rather powerful, with a strong acid spine currently keeping the dark berry and saline flavors under wraps. Finishes with building tannins that will require patience. This represents a blend of four different vineyards, including a high percentage from Altamira and Nicasia.
The 2010 Catena Alta Malbec is composed with fruit from Angelica, La Piramide, Nicasia and Adrianna and there was about 30–40% whole-cluster fermentation with a pinch of Viognier and Cabernet Franc. As with many others, the fruit from four different vineyards created different lots from different stages of harvests and different fermentation methods. A pure exercise of blending a selection of available wines from this painstaking working method. It feels riper than the Alta Cabernet, quite dark, with aromas of ripe plums, blackberries and a touch of spices, but with air the nose comes back with a strong violet note. It is medium-bodied, with good acidity, clean and pungent flavors, ending long and supple. Excellent. Drink 2014–2020.
Shows a saturated dark violet color. The nose offers freshly ground, ripe berry fruits with layers of wild flowers, mocha and tobacco. The mouthfeel is full with excellent weight and concentration with a soft and silky texture. The mid palate offers rich cassis and black currant fruit flavors interwoven with hints of chocolate, vanilla and black pepper. It finishes with a wonderful minerality, finely grained tannins and lively acidity.
