Bodega Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard Malbec 2013 (Mendoza, Argentina) "...black fruit, red currants, and sweet oak..."
Located in the far southerly growing region of Altamira en La Consulta, the Nicasia vineyard is the only planting of the special Catena Selection of Malbec cuttings in this traditional area for Malbec. La Consulta was Nicolás Catena’s father Domingo’s preferred Malbec location.
“Briary blackberry and tobacco aromas are a touch flat and jammy. This has a linear palate feel with acidity to spare. Spicy, woody flavors of plum and blueberry finish with acidic lift, leaving juicy brightness as this fades. Drink through 2028.” 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
