2018 Catena Malbec La Consulta Uco Valley

SKU #1550009 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This starts with some cedary notes, together with fresh violets, forest wood, crushed stone and vibrant, redder-toned fruit. The palate offers such juicy and succulently elegant fruit flavor with fresh red berries and supple, long, focused tannins. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Winemaker Alejandro Vigil culls grapes from several vineyards in La Consulta for this wine, fermenting it in stainless steel tanks and aging it in French oak barrels. Smoky wood tones dominate at first, but with time in the glass, lush purple fruit takes over, violet-scented and black-peppery. It’s also got grip, a vertical structure that contributes a feeling of coolness and clarity despite its opulence. Inner quote mark (10/2020)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brooding aromas of kirsch, menthol and licorice. Juicy, intense, classically dry and pristine, with its dark berry and cherry fruit flavors complicated by savory minerality. There's no lack of fruit here but today the wine stands out most for its terrific tactile length and late whiplash of flavor. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The very primary and fruit-driven 2018 Appellation La Consulta Malbec revealed a varietal personality—juicy, with some of the chalky texture of the stony soils. Easy and juicy. (LG) 90+ Inner quote mark (10/2019)
