Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Alta Angelica Vineyard 2007
Catena Alta Malbec is sourced from Lot 18 of the Angélica vineyard, located in Lunlunta (2,850’ elevation), Lot 4 from the La Pirámide vineyard, located in Agrelo (3,100’ elevation), Lot 2 from the La Consulta vineyard, located in La Consulta (3,000’ elevation), and Lots 3 & 9 from the Adrianna vineyard, located in Gualtallary (4,725’ & 4,600’ elevations). This wine undergoes a demanding selection process in both the vineyard and the winery. The Catena Alta Malbec presents a dark, opaque violet color, almost blackish in hue. The nose offers freshly ground, ripe berry fruits with layers of wild flowers, cinnamon spice, and a touch of citrus. The mouthfeel is full and coating, with exceptional weight and concentration but with a soft, supple texture. The mid palate offers rich cassis and black currant fruit flavors interwoven with hints of chocolate, vanilla and black pepper. The lengthy finish shows wonderful minerality, with finely grained tannins and lively acidity. 93 points from Robert Parker.
External Reviews for Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Alta Angelica Vineyard
Purpurrot. Typische Malbec-Nase nach Brombeeren und schwarzen Pflaumen, einer dezenten Laubnote und untermalt von süssem Vanille und Tarte au chocolat. Fester, komplexer Gaumen mit einer prächtigen Dichte, schwarzer Holunder und etwas Cassis, Kakao und melassige Noten ergänzen das Gaumenbild; erstklassige, saftige Tannine, insgesamt sehr körperreich; langanhaltendes, von feinen Röstaromen begleitetes Finale.
