RATINGS: 90pts Wine Enthusiast

Laura Catena is a fourth generation winemaker who grew up in a traditional Argentine Italian winemaking family in Mendoza. Laura splits her time between Mendoza and San Francisco, California, where she is an emergency physician, university professor and occasional tango dancer. Laura had the vision of creating a new breed of Argentine wines: small quantities, artisan quality, and true to their individual terroirs. A pioneer of small grower relations in Mendoza, Laura's incredible, limited production wines come from some of Argentina's best fruit from low yield, high elevation, family owned vineyards. The wines are named after her children Luca, Dante and Nicola and the background of the label is the McDermott coat of arms of her American husband, Daniel McDermott.

Tasting Notes: Wine Enthusiast 90 points- At first, this high altitude Chardonnay comes across as massively oaked, as if extracted from a wood pile. With time, it sheds its heavy oak blanket and shows secondary notes of spiced apple and melon. It's dominated by wood throughout, and if that's not your thing, this might not be for you. Full and generous, yet balanced; drink through 2020.
