Winemaker Notes

Saturated dark violet in color, with aromas of cassis, mocha and clove. A combination of density and sweetness, with gripping flavors of dark berries, tobacco, spices, minerals and a touch of saline. A palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Malbec Argentino is a blend of the Nicasia and Adrianna Vineyards with the same elevage. As so often happens, the combination is better than either of the individual components. It is more complex aromatically, seems more opulent, has tons of flavor, and a lengthy, 60-second finish.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Rich and opulent, this drips with crushed plum and braised fig fruit flavors, kept pure and lively by well-integrated acidity and superpolished toast. The long finish sails on with graphite, fruitcake and blueberry cobbler hints. Very big, but not heady, an impressive feat. Drink now through 2012. 350 cases imported.

Catena An Introduction to the Adrianna Vineyard 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.
