94pts James Suckling

91+pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

James Suckling: "This starts with some cedary notes, together with fresh violets, forest wood, crushed stone and vibrant, redder-toned fruit. The palate offers such juicy and succulently elegant fruit flavor with fresh red berries and supple, long, focused tannins. Drink or hold." Apr 2020

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Good red-ruby color. Brooding aromas of kirsch, menthol and licorice. Juicy, intense, classically dry and pristine, with its dark berry and cherry fruit flavors complicated by savory minerality. There's no lack of fruit here but today the wine stands out most for its terrific tactile length and late whiplash of flavor. Its dusty tannins call for a year of patience. Drinking window: 2020-2027." Oct 2020

Winery:  "Family vintners for over 100 years, the Catenas are recognized for their pioneering role in high-altitude viticulture and in leading Argentina’s Malbec revolution. In the 1950s, Don Domingo Catena began sourcing Malbec from the vineyards of La Consulta. The combination of intense sunlight and cool nights yields a wine that Domingo prized for its deep purple color, black fruit aromatics and rich velvety tannins."
