Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 2009

Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 750ml 2009          
Sku: 1885236*

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. This wine is made in very limited quantities.

The 2009 Malbec Argentino is a blend of the vineyards of Adrianna and Nicasia and is 20% whole cluster and 80% whole berry fruit. The former is co-fermented with Viognier and the latter co-fermented with Cabernet Franc. It is aged in French oak barrels, of which 60% are new. It has a more opulent bouquet than the individual blends, with dark cherries, iodine, minerals and blueberry that are all beautifully defined. The palate has a dense, weighty entry with layers of ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit laced with crushed stone and a touch of graphite. The finish is supremely well-defined and focused, with immense length on the finish. Drink 2013-2030.

This dark red jumps from the glass, showing jammy black and blue fruits mixed with chewy layers of mesquite, woodsy spice and black licorice. Rich finish. Drink now through 2018.—N.W.

A rich red, with ripe flavors of linzer torte, plum pudding and fig paste backed by layers of mesquite, olive paste and grilled herbs, as grippy tannins add weight to the long, vibrant finish. Drink now through 2013.—J.M.
