A deep violet in colour. The bouquet offers intense aromas, a soft texture, and concentrated flavour. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender aromas, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by notes of blueberries and blackberries with a touch of sweet spice, and leather. It finishes with vibrant acidity, well-integrated and silky tannins, and a flinty minerality that lingers.

This is the story of how we have poured our lives, our passion, our spirit into transforming a scrub laden desert into some of the most beautiful and unique vineyards in the world. This is the story of how we have passed our knowledge from father to son, and daughter, across the generations and blended that collective memory of family with state-of-the-art science from the new world of viticulture. It is a tale of taking risks, of backing a hunch, of making a giant leap of faith, of enjoying a little luck along the way, to make our treasured terroir in Mendoza the fountainhead for the wines that carry our name. As with all great New World winemaking families, the Catena family’s ties to the vineyard stretch back more than a century. Nicola Catena, the son of vineyard workers, was born in the fertile Italian wine growing province of Marche, Italy. The Catena family roots, like those of the Mondavi and Gallo families. Nicola set out for the New World at the end of the last century, taking with him a love for the vines and a keen desire to grow grapes and make wine on land of his own.
