Wine Review: The dark ruby colored Malbec opens with an intriguing blueberry, blackberry and black cherry bouquet with a hint of leather and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a gentle black plum with notes of oak, black cherry and black pepper. The finish is dry and its mild tannins and flavors fade away nicely. This Malbec is very food friendly and went well with my pork tenderloin at the Black Point Inn. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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.
