James Suckling, 94 Points 

"Wonderful aromas of dried strawberries, flowers and lemons. Full-bodied with a lovely, fluid center palate that is sweetly fruity and a long, long finish. Love this wine." 

Decanter, 91 Points 

"A smart buy. Having spent 12 months in French barrels (35% new) the juicy black fruit and leafy aromas contrast with sweet spices and hints of cedar. Concentrated with rich freshness and fine tannins." 

Vinous, 91 Points 

"Black cherry, licorice, menthol and smoky minerality on the nose, plus a whiff of chocolatey reduction. Saline and very fine-grained, with medicinal black cherry and menthol flavors lifted by spices and flowers. Rather backward but already showcases the ripeness of the vintage, but with a restrained sweetness. Finishes saline, tactile and suave, with smooth tannins and lingering dark fruits. A lovely vintage for this bottling (an homage to Laura Catena's grandfather Domingo Vicente Catena), which includes some century-old Bonarda vines." 

Vineyards: 

"The Catena wines are a special assemblage of High Mountain Estate Vineyards made by fourth generation vintner, Laura Catena and chief winemaker, Alejandro Vigil. Although we have found that most of the Catena wines are consumed shortly after release, we are pleased to see that they age beautifully for ten to twenty years. Through decades of study and exploration within Mendoza's high altitude mountain terroirs, the Catena family has identified special locations for its Estate vineyards. From the marriage of these historic vineyards emerges a wine of unique character that has natural balance, concentration and a distinct varietal identity." 

Winemaking: 

"This wine goes through an extensive cold maceration for 5 days at 48ºF (8,8ºC) to extract aromas. The juice is then fermented for 16 days with a post-fermentation maceration of 22 days. Wild Yeasts. Elevage: 12-14 months in barrel. Barrel selection varies depending on vineyard and vintage -First, second and third use barrels used."
