Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by flavors of blueberries and blackberries with a touch of tart cranberries, sweet spice, and leather. The wine finishes with bright acidity, well-integrated and silky tannins, and a flinty minerality that lingers on the palate.
We at Catena Zapata have long believed that every wine begins in the vineyard. In this spirit we began, in 1983, a pioneering research project into the microclimates of Mendoza, Argentina. Through the planting of carefully selected clones in various vineyard sites, we were able to identify the ideal locations for our premium wine vineyards.
