Catalpa Assemblage 2013, Bodega Atamisque, Uco Valley, Argentina

Sold out.

This Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) with a splash of prime Argentinian Malbec, brings all the warmth and body you would expect from Atamisque. Rich aromas of blackcurrant, touches of sweet toasty oak and eucalyptus with an elegant palate of black fruit combine in delicious complexity. An excellent example of Argentina showcasing that there really is “Life after Malbec”! The tannins are beautifully integrated but still robust enough to stand up to roast beef on a Sunday afternoon, and this wine will only improve gracefully with time in bottle.
