    Wine Description:
    Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino is made from a meticulous vine selection in the best lots of the Catena family’s estate vineyards. These Zapata vines are carefully hand tended and produce extremely low yields. The grapes are micro-fermented in new French oak barriques and the wine is then aged for 24 months in new French oak. This wine is made in very limited quantities.

    Tasting Notes:
    The Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino shows a saturated dark violet color with ruby reflections; the nose offers cassis, blueberries and violets, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping, lightly saline flavors of mocha, dark berries, spice, and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.

    Food Pairing:
    Pairs well with lamb chops, beef tenderloin, and goat cheese. - Winery


    The fresh, floral and expressive 2016 Catena Malbec blends grapes from different parts of Mendoza: Lunlunta, Agrelo, Altamira El Cepillo and Gualtallary. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for an average of 12 months. It’s straight and a little austere but has deep flavors. Superb quality for the price and volume. 984,000 bottles produced. - Robert Parker 92 Points

    Bright ruby-red. Musky scents of black raspberry, blueberry, dark chocolate and spices. Denser, sweeter and riper than the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, showing a more chocolatey character on the palate, but also nicely delineated owing to subtle herb and pepper nuances and mineral accents. The wine’s Uco Valley component is obvious in its inner-mouth perfume. Not the ripest or fullest recent vintage for this bottling but this intense midweight finishes with repeating pepper and herb notes and very good length. - Vinous Media 89 Points
