Winemaker Notes

The 2005 Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard Malbec shows a deep, opaque violet color with blackish tones. The nose is ripe and intense presenting dark fruit aromas interwoven with delicate notes of violets, anis and spice box. The mouthfeel is full and rich, offering ripe crushed cassis flavors along with traces of roasted espresso bean and vanilla spice. The finish shows wonderful structure, with racy acidity and stony minerality.

"Opaque purple-colored, it displays an expressive perfume of wood smoke, mineral, scorched earth, allspice, black cherry and blackberry. On the palate it is full-bodied with gobs of savory fruit, a smooth texture, sweet flavors and superb depth." 96 Points,
WineAdvocate

"This aims for power, delivering dark, dense layers of fig sauce, roasted plum and warm currant preserve all layered with dark chocolate, espresso and black licorice. The long, dense finish is really well-built. Best from 2009 through 2015." 94 Points,
Wine Spectator

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.
