This is a remarkably priced, world-class red blend from a remarkable international collaboration. This smooth, rich and ripe, well oaked 65% Malbec 35% Cabernet Sauvignon blend is the result of a collaboration between iconic Argentine producer Nicolas Catena and world-famous Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) of first growth Bordeaux fame. Truly the best of the old world and the new, this is all about big, smooth and nicely oaked Argentine fruit with a hint of top notch Bordeaux thrown in. Made from hand-selected fruit and meticulously vinified, it sees eighteen months in the finest of French oak from Lafite's in-house coopers. And can you ever tell there is a strong French influence immediately on the arresting nose - that amazing Lafite oak comes through as a perfumy overlay over the strong aromas of dark fruit, coffee and spices, with anise and classic Bordeaux graphite following. The strong, but oh-so-smooth, elegant and very supple fruit coats the palate without overpowering. There is plenty of dark fruit of exceptional depth and purity. And a smooth, long, supple finish with those fine French oak tannins and a hint of dark cocoa. Remarkably refined and such a satisfying blend of the old and new world. At a great price - limited - don't wait on this.
