IF you are looking for the highest-rated, best-priced wine from a Legendary Producer you found it!
For $20 there is nothing better than Catena’s High Mountain Series.
Catena has garnered more awards than any other winery from Mendoza, including making the Top 10 list of Best Wineries almost every year!
Their ability to craft multiple 100-Point wines each year is unfathomable. They have a world-class winemaker, dedicated owner, and wines that not only impress but change the way we think about wine.
James Suckling 95 PointsThis takes a spicy stance with attractively matched oak and plums, currants and violets. The palate has such succulent, dark-plum flavors with long, polished tannins. Impressive poise and depth here.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate 93+ PointsThe star of the appellation range is usually the Malbec from Altamira, and the 2018 Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec does not disappoint. One of the plots was harvested quite early, and the rest fermented with full clusters and finished fermentation without skins, which seems to have added to the elegance/ethereal character of the wine. It’s expressive and floral, varietal, and with the full chalky texture that is a distinct characteristic of Altamira. It’s tasty, the tannins are polished and there is an almost salty sensation in the finish.
