The 2020 Tinto Historico DV Catena is a blend of 75% Malbec grapes from the Uco Valley, with 19% Bonarda from Rivadavia and 6% Petit Verdot from Agrelo, aged for up to 14 months in French barrels. Dark purple in the glass, the nose offers clear notes of ripe plum and jam, hints of blackberry and touches of herb and white pepper with secondary aromas from the aging process. Terse in the mouth with a juicy, mild freshness, the tannins almost imperceptibly structure the palate but relax their hold on the easygoing flow. This is a nuanced, eminently drinkable wine.
