MALBEC/ High altitude vines selected by Laura Catena. The Catena family, since 1902: Argentina's Malbec pioneer. For over four generations, the Catena family has grown vines in the foothills of the Andes mountains in Mendoza, Argentina. Laura Catena, great granddaughter of founder Nicola Catena, has created a Malbec blend with intense black fruit aromatics and the smooth, lengthy finish that has become the family's trademark characteristic. Catena Malbec is sourced from the family's high altitude vineyards in Maipu (20%), Lujan de Cuyo (10%), Tupungato (40%) and San Carlos (30%). From the marriage of these historic parcels emerges a wine of unique character that has natural balance, concentration and a distinct varietal identity. Alc. by vol 13.9%. Estate grown and bottled by Bodega Catena Zapata. Product of Argentina.
