Blending different varietals, different lots and even different vintages is an art as old as winemaking itself. In Bordeaux, the blending of the famous five - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec - is a centuries old art. Each component is thought to add a level of complexity to the wine. Over the past 20 years, Nicolás and Laura Catena and their vineyard management team have worked tirelessly in the discovery, identification and development of key microclimates in the high altitude wine country of Mendoza, Argentina. Nicolás Catena has planted an almost countless number of varietals and clones throughout his mountain vineyard sites. This quest for quality lead Nicolás and Laura Catena to a crucial discovery regarding the influence of altitude on grape cultivation in Mendoza. Observing the important differences in soil types, average temperatures and thermal amplitudes that exist at varying altitudes, he found that vineyard sites which are just a few kilometers apart Read more »

  • The La Finca is not very I think also - stick with Catena, and those styles. Better yet, go with Tikal Malbec blends - I like the Syrah mix best, but the Cabby blend is good - they need a little aging though.  The only good 19 Crimes that I've actually purchased is The Warden. Was recently gifted The Banished and The Red Blend.  Haven't tried an... Read More

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Chardonnay Mendoza Catena Alta 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Creamy baked apple aromas of brioche and cinnamon spice with vanilla oak and a lemon cream glaze. Full bodied lemon meringue and butter flavors on the palate with an oaky finish that has a bit of texture to it and a bit of citrus zest. Read More

  • Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Fruit forward aromas of black cherry and blackberry with fresh spice and vanilla notes. Juicy and expressive on the palate, very fruity and richly textured with a smooth buttery palate texture that almost clashes with the tart cranberry and red currant notes but manages to balance nicely with a touch of cherry blossom on the finish.
