Bodega Catena Zapata 2006

  • Area: Aargentina, Mendoza
  • Grape: Malbec
  • Alcohol: 13.95
  • Rating: Black; 90 Dilettante; 92 Nwjr; 92 The Z; 92
Description: The nose has aromas of wood, dark fruits, damp earth, menthol, raspberry and bald tires. Bald tires? Hmmm, I don't remember which one of us came up with that odd description. Anyway, this wine has a nice brightness to it with concentrated fruit flavors of tangerine peel, plum and earth. The finish is long and dry with light, bright, bitter tones. Decanting not required.

Price: $24.99
