The 2017 Catena Malbec shows a deep violet color with purple reflections. The nose offers concentrated aromas of ripe red and dark fruits with delicate floral notes like violets and lavander, and traces of vanilla and moca. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, with blueberries and blackberries notes and a touch of leather and cinamon. The finish presents well integrated-tannins with bright acidity and a flinty minerality that gives the wine exceptional length. Pair with roast turkey, grilled steak, salmon, and pasta with red sauce.

I compared the 2016 with the 2017 Catena Malbec, one of their most popular bottlings. Even though the vintage was not as cool as 2016, the wine keeps great freshness and elegance and is very harmonious, with integrated oak and focused flavors. 1.2 million bottles produced and bottled in three different lots.

(13.3% alcohol; bottled last November; 95% of this wine is from Uco Valley fruit, the rest from Lunlunta): Bright ruby-red. Expressive aromas of dark raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, licorice, violet, tobacco and herbs, plus a whiff of leather. The palate delivers lovely pure dark fruit flavors at moderate alcohol, with hints of peppery herbs and minerals giving the wine very good cut and lift. Finishes classically dry and long. A lot of wine for the price.
