Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Catena Lunlunta Vineyard 2007
a friend brought this over where it was 3/4ths of the way through and i'm just having a glass now: it's boring, light and not interesting at all. i can see what others are saying is there in the wine but perhaps a few hours of being opened doesn't help it any.Add winemaker's notes

Berry and cedar scent. Dry, dark cherry. A little powdery.
Catena Zapata Malbec 2007- Color-shadowed Ruby Nose- Raw spiced sausage, dried flowers and vegetation with surprisingly little oak. Has this whisper of black olives. Taste- Good measured oak, sausage remains for the time but fades through the glass. Good spices that compliment but do not overpower. No harsh tannins. Heavy thick blackberry and ripe plum (but not jammy or sweet) brings this wine to a head. Just very well balanced with a finish that lasts and lasts but doesn't change when compared to the initial mouth feel. Score: 91
Amazing wine for the price.
I was anxious to try this Malbec from Catena. It has garnered great reviews. I liked it, but there are so many great malbecs to try from the Mendoza area, so I haven't returned to Catena or cellared any...yet. It was a little too bright for me and I didn't think it had the smooth lengthy finish it is known for.
Beautiful dark ripe fruits and oak on the nose. Great weight in the mouth, firm tannin but enjoyable now. Nice vanilla oak and reasonably long finish
Rich, dark color in the glass, not as strong on the nose or palate as I expected with an pleasant aroma of black cherry and mocha. This wine really opens up after 30-45 minutes of decanting.
