"The Lunlunta shows a deep violet color with purple reflections. The nose offers concentrated aromas of ripe red and dark fruits with traces of vanilla and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, with blueberries and blackberries notes and a touch of leather and cinnamon. The finish presents well integrated supple tannins with a flinty minerality that gives the wine exceptional length." —winemaker
"The new appellation range, sold at unbelievable prices, includes a 2014 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec that is produced from a very old vineyard in Lunlunta, in the Luján de Cuyo district, as part of Lunlunta is also in Maipú. This is aged in oak barrels, where the wine matures for some 12-14 months. Lunlunta produces powerful wines that require a longer aging. The old vines produce low yields, and they have been harvesting earlier and earlier, because a combination of low yields with late harvesting would result in too high maturity. Not the case here, where the nose is incredibly perfumed with the telltale Malbec profile of violets and morello cherries with a pinch of spices and perfectly integrated oak. The palate is soft and caressing, with juicy tannins and incredible freshness. Soooo pleasant! It developed a lactic note with time in the glass. The range started in 2011 but somehow I never got to taste that until now; they are destined to the restaurant business. 24,000 bottles produced." —Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate

"Dark red. Slightly reduced aromas of plum and redcurrant, plus a suggestion of peppery greenness. Juicy and quite dry; in fact a bit skinny for a Catena wine. Dark fruit and licorice flavors are accented by pepper and herbs; shows a smooth texture but a bit green for my taste. The dusty tannins are not yet in harmony with the wine's acidity." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
