Laura Catena, 4th gen winemaker, grew up in Argentine-Italian winemaking family in Mendoza. Wines, named after her children - Luca, Dante & Nicola - background of the label is the McDermott coat of arms of her American husband, Daniel McDermott. Single-vineyard wine from land belonging to the Laborde family. Deep red with big ripe fruits & smoky oak. Palate plum & jammy blackberry, spicier than ‘13, with nice earthy character. Tannins are a bit rustic, lingering ending with toasty oak & spice. Very nice.

Superb #Malbec. This #wine opens fuming with big berries and white pepper opening up to more brambly fruit, heavier pepper and showing some savory components. Clean, blackberry with seeds, stemy. Food worthy, suggesting heavier meats. Opened 12/3/17

Drinking the 2014 in 2018. Deep rich color. Excellent clarity. Full bouquet, rich with berry and oak. Very smooth on the tongue with low tannins. Slightly sweet flavor with rich berries and an oaky finish. Very nice wine.
