Catena Zapata 2014 Malbec (Mendoza) Argentina
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $21-23 + taxes
Date Tasted: July 9th, 2016
Tasting Notes: A fresh and lifted Malbec produced by the Catena Zapata family from their many high elevation vineyards in Mendoza. Floral and fruity with violet and black currant aromas above underlying notes of light spice, sweet earth and pencil shavings. Palate has a hint of residual sugar with prominent, wild blackberry flavour and acidity followed by savoury notes of oak, spice, minerals and light licorice. Nothing out of place. Ready to go in its youth. Drink now-2019.
