Catena Alta Malbec 2008 shows a saturated dark violet color. The nose offers freshly ground, ripe berry fruits with layers of wild flowers, mocha and tobacco. The mouthfeel is full with excellent weight and concentration with a soft and silky texture. The mid palate offers rich cassis and black currant fruit flavors interwoven with hints of chocolate, vanilla and black pepper. It finishes with a wonderful minerality, finely grained tannins and lively acidity.


Winemaker's Notes:

The Catena Alta Malbec presents a dark, opaque violet color, almost black in hue. The nose offers freshly ground, ripe berry fruits with layers of violet flowers, cinnamon spice and a touch of lavander. 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.

Tasting Notes:

Angélica Zapata Malbec Alta 2008 is a blend of Malbec grapes sourced from different vineyards. The result is a wine of great concentration and elegance. The “Angélica” vineyard offers ripe plum jammy flavors with a soft, supple mouthfeel. “La Pirámide” lends intense black berry fruit with spicy black pepper and clove. “Altamira” provides elegance and freshness on the palate with a flavor profile of red berry fruit. Lot 3 from “Adrianna” is intensely floral, with hints of violets and lavender, while lot 9 provides a deeply violet color and a long persistent finish of cassis flavors and mineral notes. These five elements contribute to wonderful complexity in the final blend.. Alejandro Vigil, Chief Winemaker.
