Reviews and Ratings

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Catena Malbec presents an opaque violet, almost blackish color typical of top quality Argentine Malbec. This wine offers intense aromatics with rich, concentrated flavors, and a soft generous texture. It has ripe plum and chocolate flavors with a very soft, supple mouthfeel and a core of black currant and cassis, with excellent structure and length.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
