I was truly impressed by the 2012 Catena Alta Malbec, a blend of wines produced with Malbec grapes from different zones within Mendoza. The nose shows incredible freshness (early harvest?) and a mixture of violets, blueberries and bright red cherries and is also subtly spiced. The seamless palate shows very refined tannins, a velvety texture and great acidity. It has a really tasty and lengthy finish. A triumph over the vintage. Bravo! 60,000 bottles produced.
