Region : Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Varietal : 100% Malbec
Tasting Notes : The 2010 Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard is a single-vineyard Malbec from their vines from Nicasia in Altamira (La Consulta) in the south of the Uco Valley, a chalk-rich zone that is quickly gaining ground on the terroir map of Mendoza. Concentrated, showing buried acidity behind the jammy crushed black cherry, cassis and plum sauce flavors, featuring a range of graphite, fine tobacco and licorice notes. Structured, with a long, fruit-driven finish.
