2000 Catena Malbec
Winemaker's Notes

Fact Sheet

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 2000 vintage continues this legacy. Its dark, violet color; its explosive aromatics; its rich concentrated fruit flavors; and its soft, sweet tannins show the great potential of Argentine Malbec.
