Catena has again hit a home run with her 2009 Pinot Noir (as she did in 2006 2007 and 2008). There is very little Pinot Noir in Mendoza (Patagonia is the principal hope for Argentina Pinot Noir) so this streak is particularly impressive. The grapes are sourced from a relatively young vineyard at 4700 feet of elevation. The wine was aged for 12 months in 30% new oak and bottled without fining or filtration. Medium ruby in color it offers up an alluring bouquet of cherry blossom strawberry raspberry smoke and incense. Velvety-textured with silky layered fruit complex flavors and a lingering finish this superb value (for Pinot Noir) will provide pleasure for another 6-8 years if not longer.
