Country: Argentina, Mendoza
Tasting Notes: The Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino shows a saturated dark violet color with ruby reflections; the nose offers cassis, blueberries and violets, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping, lightly saline flavors of mocha, dark berries, spice, and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.
Varietal: 100% Malbec
Pairing: Pairs well with lamb chops, beef tenderloin, and goat cheese.
