Catena Alta Historic Rows Malbec 2020
Gorgeous and elegantly layered, with orange peel, hibiscus and hints of river mint as the entry to red currant and wild strawberry flavors, which are enlivened by a crunchy base of mineral acidity that allows the core flavors to spread out and linger around suave tannins. Drink now through 2032. 13,800 cases made, 5,500 cases imported.
The 2020 Malbec Catena Alta is a combination of grapes from specific historic lots in Lujan de Cuyo and the Uco Valley and was aged for up to 18 months in new and unused barrels. Purple in the glass. The complex nose presents notes of ripe plum with hints of spice, cedar and refined woody flavors along with a hint of jam. Indulgent and broad with a lean feel and expansive flow, the precise freshness and grippy tannins lend solidity to the palate.
