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. The wine is made in very limited quantities.
The Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino shows a saturated dark violet color with ruby reflections; the nose offers cassis, blueberries and violets, along with strong suggestions 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.
