    The 2012 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino is a blend of grapes from Adrianna (Gualtallary) and Nicasia (Altamira) vineyards in the Uco Valley. The nose made me think of meat broth, vegetable concentrate and other umami-laden foods as it's really tasty. There is something earthy too, and the palate is concentrated yet feels light. Balance, harmony, power and freshness. 11,000 bottles were produced in the 2012 vintage.

    Malbec is a deeply colored variety with aromas of black cherry, plum, pomagranite, and blueberry. Originally from Cahors in Southwest France, the grape is now synonymous with wines from Argentina. The highest-quality wines are full-bodied and matured in new oak, lending subtle spicy flavors. The best examples come from producers such as Catena Zapata

     

    Malbec’s strong aromas and full body pair well with filet mignon, lamb, buffalo burgers, blue cheese, mozzarella, and mushrooms.
