Catena 'Nicasia Vineyard' Malbec
90% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. Great wines begin in the vineyard. Their vision is to make rich and unforgettable wines that are true to the special place they come from. The story of Catena is the story of Argentine wine. Founded in 1902, Argentina's Bodega Catena Zapata is known for its pioneering role in resurrecting Malbec and in discovering extreme high altitude terroirs in the Andean foothills of Mendoza.
TASTING NOTESEnormously spicy with a dense tannin structure that makes this Malbec spectacular and slightly erotic, too. A breathtakingly long finish that makes you want more. The balance of this is so good that you can drink it right now. If you can resist drinking it now, this probably has a couple of decades of ageing potential.
FOOD PAIRINGPairs well with roasted veal, shiitake mushrooms and beef tenderloin.
