Catena-Zapata-Malbec-Argentino-2013

Catena Zapata, Malbec Argentino, 2013

“They blend two plots from two of their flagship vineyards, Adrianna in Gualtallary and Nicasia in Altamira to create the 2013 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino. It is a classical Malbec with some creamy, smoky notes, juicy, polished and fresh but with enough power to stand up to food. Some 11,000 were bottles produced.” – Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate (95 Points)

“Bright medium ruby. Blackberry, licorice and a hint of violet pastille on the almost candied nose. Wonderfully refined, tactile, savory Malbec with terrific intensity and depth and a near-perfect sugar/acid balance to its dark berry, floral and sweet oak flavors. Quite primary today but already remarkably sexy, this juicy, very long wine should evolve spectacularly in bottle. But it will need time to absorb its dusty, broad tannins and gain in complexity.” – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (94 Points)
