Featured Wines: 
Catena Malbec 750ML
Catena Malbec 750ML    
sku: 13037

Wine Spectator: A sleek, polished style, with alluring mocha and raspberry ganache notes leading the way, backed by dark plum, hoisin sauce and graphite flavors that push through the finish. This has serious weight, but stays focused and driven. Drink now through 2011. 60,000 cases imported. -JM

Robert Parker: The purple-colored 2007 Catena Malbec spent 12 months in 35% new French and American oak. The nose reveals balsam wood, vanilla, mocha, cassis, and black cherry. Plush on the palate, this medium-bodied Malbec has layered, spicy flavors, with a touch of tobacco and leather making an appearance. Balanced and lengthy, it will evolve for 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2019.

Wine Maker's Notes:

The 2007 Catena Malbec shows a dark violet color with deep bluish - black tones. The nose offers ripe, concentrated dark fruit aromas with delicate floral notes and traces of vanilla and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and lush, with concentrated black cherry and red currant fruit flavors layered with sweet spices, tobacco and a touch of leather. The finish presents soft, supple tannins with bright, crisp acidity and a flinty minerality which gives the wine exceptional length.

The fruit for the Catena Malbec undergoes a short pre-fermentation, cold maceration for 5 days at a temperature of 48 degrees F. This process allows for excellent extraction of aromas and color. The juice is then fermented between 75 - 80 degrees F. These moderate temperatures allow for wonderful mid-palate extraction while avoiding any harsh or bitter tannins. The wine is aged in a blend of French and American oak for 12 months, with 35% new oak adding wonderful layers of complexity.more

Catena Chard 750ML
Catena Chard 750ML    
sku: 13038

Wine Spectator: Ripe and focused, with tasty pear, dried pineapple and grilled hazelnut notes, followed by a juicy finish. Drink now. 30,000 cases imported. -JM

Robert Parker: The 2007 Chardonnay received some barrel fermentation but was aged in stainless steel. It offers a sophisticated bouquet with a touch of toasty oak, mineral, poached pear, and tropical notes. This is followed by a smooth-textured wine with spicy, savory white fruits, bright acidity, excellent concentration, and a fruit-filled finish. Drink this great value over the next 2-3 years.

Bodegas Catena-Zapata remains the reference point for Argentina wines. These three value-priced wines exemplify the focus on quality. The -regular- bottling of Chardonnay is an annual candidate for Chardonnay value of the year.

Wine Maker's Notes:

The 2007 vintage of the Catena Chardonnay combines the unique expressions of three high altitude vineyard sites. The La Piramide vineyard offers honeyed tropical fruit flavors with a rich, unctuous mouthfeel. The Domingo vineyard lends citrus notes with a crisp finish. The Adrianna vineyard contributes pear and fig flavors with a strong minerality. The wine shows an intense greenish color with light yellow notes. The aromas offer ripe mango fruit flavors with notes of peaches and hints of fruitcake spices. The mouthfeel is full yet clean, with fresh, crisp acidity.more
