The first super-premium Argentine Malbec introduced into the international market, Catena Malbec has become a benchmark for the exceptional price to quality ratio which this most Argentine of grapes can offer. The 2001 vintage continues this legacy. A blend of two unique vineyard sites and microclimates, the 2001 Catena Malbec offers the dark, violet color typical of Argentine Malbec. The Altamira in La Consulta vineyard offers explosive floral aromatics while the Angelica vineyard provides rich, ripe blackberry fruit elements. The soft, sweet mouthfeel and ripe, velvety tannins are characteristic of the Angelica terroir. This wine shows the great potential of Argentine Malbec.
