The 2009 Nicasia Vineyard Malbec, named after Nicolas Catenas’ grandfather, comes from a special selection of cuttings. It is 100% whole cluster and 90% whole berry fruit, undergoing fermentation at low temperatures and aged 60% in new French oak for 18 months. It has a complex bouquet of blackberry, crushed stone, smoke and lavender that is beautifully defined and sophisticated. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. It is extremely well-balanced, with a broody, introverted, somehow enigmatic finish that you just want to keep sipping in order to unlock its secrets. Sublime. Drink 2013-2025+.
