    This special wine has been awarded many points over the years, and the 2018 in no exception, with a highly respectable 98 points from Robert Parker.

    Expressive, silky and packed full of blueberry, cassis and soft vanilla notes. The tannins are smooth and the acidity is fresh, enabling this wine to age for at least 15 years.

    Located in the far southerly growing region of La Consulta, the Nicasia vineyard is the only planting of the special Catena Selection of Malbec cuttings in this traditional area for Malbec. La Consulta was also Nicolás Catena’s father Domingo’s preferred Malbec location.

    This is a stunning wine which reflects Catena's commitment to finding the best plots for Malbec.
