This clean, fresh, racy Malbec from the Catena family of wineries hails from an elevated section of Mendoza. The palate features zippy cherry and red plum fruit, while the finish is dry, properly oaky and smooth. The acid-driven fruit successfully fights through any overt wood or tannins, providing newcomers a nice introduction to Malbec.
