Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Laura Catena is a 4th generation Malbec grower. With Luca, Laura pioneered grower relations in Mendoza and discovered many small old vine Malbec vineyards that were previously going into bulk wine. The Luca team works with some of the best family vineyards in the Uco Valley to make this rich and dense example of Malbec.

Winemaker's Notes

Incredible color—could use in an inkwell. Loads of deep berry and black cherry fruit flavors and aromas. Beautifully density and structure with lots of fine tannins and incredible length. Will age well, but could be hard to keep your hands off of. Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.
