A winery that defines excellence

Some wineries define excellence for their region and such is the case with Catena Zapata in Mendoza, Argentina. It was Nicolas Catena's genius to plant in the high-altitude region of Mendoza because he believed the result would be a better balance of fruit, tannin, and acidity in his wines. Many "experts" thought he was making a huge mistake but there is no question today that the Malbec and Cabernet (and increasingly Pinot Noir) grown there results in exquisite wines.

The 2019 Catena Zapata Malbec Catena is a perfect illustration. At only $16.99,

it is soft and generous on the palate with a pronounced floral character on the nose. Textbook Mendoza Malbec, it has perfect balance and a long, sumptuous finish. Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate agrees with us, rating it 92 points!
