CATENA Malbec 2015

90 Points

The High Mountain Vines tips us off to the freshness to be found here, which works to carry the sunned red fruits and leathered mid along a lengthy palate. Sourced from four vineyards ranging from 920m - 1450m, and across various soil types, this carries cherries, wild raspberries, dark cocoa dusted tannins along a stream of acidity to a satisfyingly lingering, smokey finish. This vintage has really opened up, though still benefits from a decant.
