2000 Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec "Alta Angelica Zapata" Mendoza
Lovely, with captivating aromas of Valrhona chocolate, raspberry confiture and sweet smoke. Juicy and dense on the palate, with purity and focus to the raspberry and blackberry flavors that cruise through a lengthy, harmonious finish.
Oak is a dominating factor, but if you can handle that, like the fruit can, you should enjoy this burly Malbec. Aromas of charred wood and sawdust lead into black cherry and blackberry. The finish is pure mocha and vanilla, and at all points it’s tannic, layered and satisfying.
