89 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: Deliciously long, bright, textural Pinot from cold, stony vineyards deep in the Cental Valley's old glacial riverbeds – some Vosges barrel fermentation adds complexity, depth and warm vanilla notes to the finish.
Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina | 93% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon
90 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: Aromas of violet, jasmine, and ripe red fruits. The palate opens with notes of plums and toffee and gives way to hints of almonds and cinnamon. Round tannins lead into a ripe fruit finish.
Winemaking Philosophy: Leopoldo Kuschnaroff hails from a family of farmers, born of Ukrainian immigrants to Argentina. A true son of the Mendoza wine region, he graduated trade school with a degree in winemaking in 1999, followed by a master's degree in viticulture from the prestigious Cuyo University. His prime philosophy and goal as a winemaker is to make wines reflective of the terroir, a challenge which enables him to experiment with the different microclimates of the Uco Valley, perfecting wine that is truly representative of this region. Leopoldo has been working with the Catena family since 2007, joining the prestigious High Note brand in 2013.

France | Varietal Composition: Explosive blend of Mourvèdre and Carignan with Syrah and Grenache
Winemaker's Notes: It has a soft pink colour that refers to its character as a wine: with an excellent aromatic length and depth, it displays fresh, elegant and floral notes overlying aromas of pear and light red fruits (raspberry and red currant). Equally appreciated as an aperitif or throughout a meal, it expresses itself best at 9° and served as an accompaniment to grilled tuna or sea bass, paella, curried mussels or, alternatively, sweet and savoury Asian dishes such as pork with pineapple and chicken with orange.
