Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) No matter what the vintage, this wine is really more than 100 years old. It represents a family's journey to produce an Argentine Malbec that can stand with the great wines of the world. Malbec Argentino is a blend of Catena Zapata's historic Malbec vineyards Adrianna and Nicasia.

    Nice jammy nose, big black cherry and currant flavors with a pleasant dryness and lingering finish. Takes a few hours to really open up, though

    Raisins, prunes, musty, heady, soy sauce, full-bodied, juicy, tart. Really delicious and savory at room temp. Great value.

    Well rounded. Hint of leather and perhaps vanilla. Like.
