    October 17, 2021 - Cherries and assorted black fruit, leather, oak. Good balance with acid and tannins. Proper Malbec.

    September 23, 2021 - This wine has a rich dark glossy sheen and aromas of ripe black cherry and coffee, the fruit is present on the taste and with a glass the tannin gains more balance

    September 19, 2021 - Nice bottle but not a lot of complexity. Low tannins and acidity. Very smooth and good match with steak and corn on the cob.

    September 7, 2021 - To everyone who is wondering… it is not the vintage, you are witnessing what the market does to wines as production and demand increases at the bottom level. This is simply a value wine now not a cool find or a “Steal” anymore sorry to say it you’re gonna have to pay $45 for Alta to get that.
    Read below….

    The flagship Catena Mendoza Malbec ($25 a 750-ml.) jumped by 45% last year, according to Catena, making it the fastest-growing varietal within the winery’s core lineup….
    Overall, the winery sells approximately 165,000 cases annually in the U.S. their higher end wines maybe account for 10-15,000 cases in total of that.

    I believe Catena still makes amazing Malbec but they are now globally recognized so we have to pay a premium now to get the good stuff and it’s so very good if you do !
