Critical Acclaim

JS95 JamesSuckling.com Wednesday, June 21, 2017

"Aromas of graphite and dark fruit with hints of spice and tea bag. Mushroom too. Full body, yet refined and beautifully textured. Love the low oak impression. Made in mostly concrete eggs. Fantastic. Drink now." (95 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2016

"The peachy 2014 Catena Malbec is juicy and with good ripeness, a soft style with round, sweet tannins and some toasty notes with sweet spices. Somehow this is a more approachable and drinkable than the 2015 at the moment. This is a very complex blend of many vineyards, points of harvests and different vinifications and aging to produce around one million bottles, which at this quality level is impressive." (89 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
