This Malbec has made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List twice for a reason —it is quintessentially expressive of Mendoza and impossible to replicate.
Spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavors pop on the palate from its depth and lively acidity, finishing with hints of espresso.
Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses.

The 2018 Old Vine Malbec comes from vineyards in La Consulta and Gualtallary, both in the Uco Valley in Mendoza. It's a floral, juicy and expressive bottling with nicely integrated oak, fine and round tannins and some finesse.Wine Advocate October 2019
Laura Catena, now managing director of her family’s winery, created this brand to explore Argentina’s varied terroirs. This bottling comes from vineyards in La Consulta and Gualtallary, the average age of the vines 51 years. Luis Reginato makes it with a restrained hand, aging most of the wine in used barrels. After 14 months in oak, the wine’s tannins have taken on a velvety texture, and its flavors are spicy and lean. Focused on savory notes of cherry skins and cool, mineral-rich earth, it’s an elegant malbec.Wine & Spirits October 2020
