Catena Alta Malbec is deep violet in color with indigo highlights. The nose has aromas of ripe red and black berry fruits with notes of violets and lavender and hints of leather, spice, mocha, and vanilla. The wine is full-bodied, concentrated and rich on the palate with soft, sweet tannins and a silky structure. Multiple layers of rich cassis, ripe cranberries, and blackberries are interwoven with subtle notes of licorice and black pepper. An earthy minerality, finely grained tannins, and a lively acidity mark the lengthy finish.
This Malbec would be absolutely wonderful with a variety of grilled meats but especially with more full-flavored dishes like Barbecued Leg of Lamb or Roasted Baby Goat.
