Staff Pick Notes

The Catena family revolutionized Argentinian wine with their focus on the Malbec grape, altering the perception of a country known for bulk wine into one to be looked at for world-class expressions of fine wine worthy of comparisons to the greatest of Europe. This blend is made to honor the legacy of Don Domingo Vicente Catena, whose talents as a "Master of the Assemblage" captivated the clientele of the finest restaurants in Buenos Aires during the beginnings of the 20th century. Through the combination of high-elevation Uco Valley Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Bonarda, this smooth, full-bodied blend is brought back to life for us to enjoy anywhere! Blackberries, plums, violets, and spices come together to create a memorable drinking experience.

The Cahors appellation in France still relies on Malbec to distinguish many of its wines, but the area is exceptional in this regard. As the grape can be quite difficult to cultivate, it has become far less popular over the years, even in its Bordeaux home. Its South American renaissance has ensured, however, that...
