  • Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, earthy and a bit fudgy on the nose with a fine floral aspect and some gentle meaty notes. Subtle, low and soft on entry with slowly building richness of blueberry and cherry pie flavors rolling across the palate followed by some sweet oak spice and a hint of vanilla. This is supple and yet juicy, round and lacking a bit of focus in the mo... Read More

  • It’s always a good time to be talking about Chardonnay, but never better ... evidence. 91pts  2010 Catena Alta Chardonnay Mendoza Argentina 14% $33 Pretty oaky and creamy on the nose with hints of heather and almonds supporting ripe green apple and almost melonny/pumpkin like fruit.

  • Catena Alta Chardonnay 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty oaky and creamy on the nose with hints of heather and almonds supporting ripe green apple and almost melonny/pumpkin like fruit. Big, rich and a bit buttery though with plenty of supporting acid. This is a rather flamboyant wine, full of toasty oak spice and vanilla flavors that work well with the honeydew melon and green apple fruit on t... Read More

  • Catena Alta Chardonnay 6/Cs Argentina 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Offers a distinctive note of orange blossom honey and a reasonably long finish, but without the mouth-filling quality one would expect from Catenas higher line of wines. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=328) Read More

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo Alta Zapata Vineyard 2008

    Snoothrank:

    A class act, from the gorgeous violet shades in the glass, to the bouquet that alternates between orange blossoms and black cherry, through the subtle and velvety feel in the mouth, through to the unexpectedly sweet and jammy finish. This is not a barnburner cabernet, but its a smooth operator that would accompany subtly flavored meats with styl... Read More

  • Catena Alta Chardonnay 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A finely structured wine, if not generous. The dark honey color is certainly appealing, as is the mix of floral and toasted flavors conveyed to both nose and mouth (where they are joined by touches of anise), but the overall character is still rather austere.

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Alta Angelica Vineyard 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Fleshy with raspberry and blackberry, and a light oak and spice. Drink it now, but let it breathe... By far, my FAVORITE from Bodega Catena Zapata! Read More

  • Catena Alta Chard Argentina 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is well balanced. Green apples, pears, and pineapple. Long finish. Buttery texture. This wine evokes the best of the old and new world styles of chardonnay. We love chardonnay. This bottle for $25.00 is a great value. It holds its own against any of the big California Chards (Nickel & Nickel, ZD, Dumol, etc;) Try it you'll love! Read More
