Critic Reviews
90 points, James Suckling
“Sweet, fresh red berries and a briary, leafy edge. This has a very suave feel with a seamless, fluid build of fine, layered tannins and a fresh, gently tangy finish. Drink or hold.”

"A Cabernet Franc from Los Chacayes. The altitude lends this well-made wine an herbal profile of mint, sour cherry and hints of raspberry. Sugary on the palate, with taut tannins and a channeled flow that slips down well."

“Fine-grained dark fruit and slate flavors are flanked by light green herbal notes in this red. The juicy finish has mocha accents and peppery hints. Drink now.”

About The Winery
TintoNegro, meaning 'black wine' in Spanish, celebrates the essence of Malbec in Mendoza. Known for its dark, blackish color, Malbec is definitely a tinto negro. The TintoNegro portfolio explores the terroirs of Mendoza where Malbec does best, gradually isolating unique vineyard sites and winemaking techniques, and showcasing the heights of concentration and complexity to which Malbec can aspire. TintoNegro was born of the long-time friendship and professional collaboration of Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach, colleagues at Bodega Catena Zapata for almost 15 years. As Wine Education Director for Catena, Jeff travelled the world preaching the gospel of the unique character of high-altitude Malbec from Mendoza, explaining the character and expression of its many different terroirs. As Vineyard Director at Catena, Alejandro had extensive, firsthand experience growing Malbec in all of these terroirs, from the fruit-driven, easy-drinking style of Lujan de Cuyo to the concentrated, complex profile La Consulta. His intimate knowledge of the top vineyards in each region means TintoNegro wines are made from only the best fruit each area has to offer.
