Catena Alta Malbec 2014 shows a deep violet color, with blue reflections. The nose is elegant and complex with ripe red and blackberry fruits, notes of violets and lavender and a touch of leather, spice and vanilla flavors. The palate is full and rich with soft and sweet tannins and a silky, smooth structure. Mulitple layers of rich cassis, black currant and blackberries are interwoven with hints of licorice and black pepper. Its lengthy finish is marked by wonderful minerality, finely grained tannins and lively acidity. Food Pairings: Pair with braised duck with apples, or Grilled beef filet.

Wine SpectatorJuicy, with brambly flavors of raspberry and huckleberry that are supported by crisp acidity. The minerally finish has peppery notes. Drink now through 2020. 10,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine's brambly wild berry aromas are more feral and funky than Alta usually delivers, more than likely a result of the cold 2014 vintage. On the palate, it's wiry, with raw tannins and plum and berry flavors that finish with juicy acidity and tension.
