"This Argentina gem had loads of chocolate and mocha aromas and flavors. It was super luscious and seductive! This makes a great addition to any cellar or gift for the boss."

Saturated dark violet color; dark fruits and bitter chocolate on the somewhat 'tight? nose, with a strong kirsch note emerging with aeration; powerful and deep, with a grip and flavors of cassis, dark chocolate and minerals; fine-grained tannins and slowly building persistence. The Adrianna Vineyard Malbec is meant to evolve in the bottle.
mmense, packed with gorgeously pure raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit that stays fresh and driven despite its weight, thanks to perfectly embedded structure. The long, suave toast- and spice-filled finish almost flaunts its power, but stays deftly balanced. An impressive display of the modern style. Best from 2011 through 2015. 400 cases made.
"Fruity, pure and smooth on the nose, and maybe more dry and leathery than the blasting Nicasia vineyard wine. the palate has a deep, classy elegance along with power, and the flavors run toward huge black fruits, coffee and chocolate. Finishes dark, long and minerally, and overall it's yet another awesome top-flight Malbec from this woel-class winery. Drink now through 2014."
The 2007 Adrianna Vineyard Malbec is a similar purple/black in color with an expressive bouquet of sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, mineral, black cherry, and black raspberry. Opulent on the palate with serious extraction, great depth of flavor, complexity, and impeccable balance, this loaded, potent effort will evolve for at least 5-7 years and see its 20th birthday in prime condition. Catena Zapata's newest releases continue the high standards established by this Bodega virtually from its onset, a tribute to Nicolas Catena who continues to oversee his empire.
"Saturated deep ruby. Precise aromas of blackberry, graphite, licorice and mint. More intense and penetrating than the Nicasia, with even more acid energy to counterbalance its impression of sweetness. From vines picked during a cool April, says Nicolas Catena. Very firmly structured malbec with an extremely long, building, authoritative finish. I'd give this a couple years in the cellar."
