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+.” —



Concentrated and fine-tuned, sporting syrupy layers of wild berry, cassis, and dark plum notes, woven with fine tannins. Embedded acidity props up the spice- and smoke-filled finish. Drink now through 2017. 300 cases imported. –NW
