"A nicely saline and concentrated malbec here with plenty of peppercorn and dark spices to the black cherries. Full-bodied but still fluid on the palate with abundant, silky tannins. Drink or hold." James Suckling 94 points Drink 2024-36

A complex red, with an undercurrent of river stone to the orange peel and mountain herb notes that meld with rooibos tea and Rainer cherry flavors on a richly textured frame, while a gentle nudge of fresh acidity carries everything onto the finish around fine tannins and notes of dark chocolate. Drink now through 2031. 14,000 cases made, 7,000 cases imported.

The 2021 Malbec Old Vine comes from La Consulta, Paraje Altamira and Pampa El Cepilo in the Uco Valley. It was aged for 14 months, 35% in new French oak and the rest in used barrels. A rich, eye-catching purple in the glass. Fruity cherry, raspberry, crushed plum notes and hints of violets and sage dominate the aromatic profile. It's dry and juicy on the palate, with delicate, chalky tannins and a balanced mouthfeel. The 2021 is a nuanced, athletic Uco Valley Malbec.

The 2021 Old Vine Malbec is floral, aromatic, balanced, fresh and varietal with notes of violets and small berries. It has integrated oak and a tender mouthfeel with a medium body and fine tannins.

Dr. Laura Catena sources grapes from old vineyards in the Uco Valley for this fruit-focused and silky-textured Malbec. It boasts flavors of blackberry, mulberry and plum backed by fine tannins. A whisper of dried herbs and spices adds more layers to the palate.
