The 2007 Catena Alta Malbec presents a dark opaque violet color, with almost blackish hues. The nose offers freshly ground, ripe berry fruits with layers of violet flowers, cinnamon spice, and a touch of lavander. The mouthfeel is full and coating, with exceptional weight and concentration and a velvety texture. The mid-palate offers rich cassis and black currant fruit flavors interwoven with hints of chocolate, vanilla and black pepper. The lengthy finish shows wonderful minerality, with finely grained tannins and lively acidity.
