Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Mendoza Adrianna Vineyard Fortuna Terrae 2019

$140

Give this red some air and then marvel at the elegant orchestra of violet, guava, wild berry and pomegranate aromas and flavors that keep playing on to the end. A push of fresh acidity midpalate adds details of loam, marinated olive and orange peel that linger effortlessly around the core fruit flavors and integrated, lithe tannins. Shows lots of promise, which should reward cellaring. Drink now through 2036. 440 cases made, 150 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Malbec

Malbec originated in Southwest France, where it's also known as Côt; it is still the main grape in the area's top appellation, Cahors. It was once a significant blending partner in Bordeaux's reds, but has largely fallen out of favor there. Farther north in France, it has a presence in the Loire Valley. However, Malbec today is most associated with Argentina, where it has become the signature red grape. It's also grown in other New World regions, including Chile and Australia.
