Catena Alta Malbec
Description: 93 points Robert Parkers Wine Advocate
As with the other varietals of the range, I also had two vintages of this to compare, starting with the older 2015 Catena Alta Malbec. It is a mixture of grapes from multiple vineyards Angelica, La Piramide, Nicasia, Adrianna and Angelica Sur. It fermented in 225 and 500 liter oak barrels and had an elevage of some 18 months in French oak. You can notice the slightly riper year, and it does suffer a bit in comparison with the truly superb 2016 even though its a noteworthy expression of Malbec with great freshness for the climatic conditions of the year.
