Winemaker Notes

Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Malbec is made from a meticulous vine selection in the best, historic rows of the Catena family's estate vineyards. These Zapata vines are carefully hand-tended and produce extremely low yields. The grapes aremicro-fermented in anew French oak barriques prior to spending 18 months in new French oak for aging. This wine is produced in very limited quantity.

Aromas of ripe red fruits, lavender, violets, coconut and tobacco give way to a powerful and deep wine with flavors of cassis, dark chocolate and minerals as well as some liquor notes. Remarkable concentration and well-structured tannins stand out.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A complex bouquet of blackberry, chalk dust, leather and the scent of an old English stately home. …medium-bodied with a very taut, focused, tense entry. …wonderful vivacity and outstanding minerality, the finish doing that rare thing of transporting you to its place, … high up in the Andes. You will be hard pressed to find a better Malbec.
TP 95
Tasting Panel
Bright medium ruby. Tighter on the nose than the Nicasia bottling, hinting at black fruits and flowers. Then surprisingly smooth and suave in the mouth, with great class to the dark berry, game and bitter chocolate flavors. Penetrating minerality contributes to the impression of precision and verve. Finishes smooth and classically dry, with noble, mouthcoating tannins and superb persistence. I applaud winemaker Alejandro Vigil's use of cabernet franc to contribute perfume to these immensely rich malbec bottlings and wonder why more estates don't do this. Rating: 95(+) Points.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
This dark, pure red features bright acidity to prop up the dark plum skin, cassis and wild berry notes that weave throughout layered flavors of spice, mesquite and underbrush. Mouthcoating, with a long, structured finish.

Catena Laura Catena and the History of Malbec Winery Video

Bodega Catena Zapata is one of Argentina's high altitude Malbec pioneers. The Catena family began making wine in Mendoza in 1902. Nicolas Catena, third generation family vintner, was one of the first to see the potential of Mendoza's mountain vineyards for producing high quality Malbec. In 1994, he became the first Argentine to exprot a world-class bottling of Malbec under the Catena label. Nicolas is joined by his daughter, Dr. Laura Catena, in their relentless pursuit of world-class quality from the family's high altitude vineyards. Laura has done extensive work in introducing Malbec and other varietal plant selections, soil and climate analysis, and sustainable practices throughout Mendoza. Head winemaker, Alejandro Vigil, has been at Catena Zapata since 2002 and works with Laura and Nicolas to make wines that express the family's vineyards and palate.

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
