Black fruit and flowers from Uco Valley Malbec laced with spicy Petit Verdot. Malbec lends freshness and smoothness, while Petit Verdot grants volume and persistence, conferring a lush, rich attack and wonderful length to the blend.

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. 72 percent Malbec, 21 per cent Bonarda and seven percent Petit Verdot. Drink now.

Bright red-ruby. 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.
