Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Malbec 2008
Try with beef tenderloin with summer vegetables and sesame rice.
The 2008 Adrianna Vineyard Malbec also spent 18 months in 100% new French barriques. It is a similar purple/black in color, with an expressive bouquet of sandalwood, exotic spices, incense, mineral, black cherry, and black raspberry. Broader on the palate than the Nicasia cuvee, it displays serious extraction, great depth of flavor, complexity, and impeccable balance. This loaded, lengthy effort will evolve for at least 5-7 years and offers a drinking window extending from 2024 to 2028.
This dense, concentrated red features jammy layers of kirsch, cassis and plum sauce, all woven with hints of vanilla, mesquite and black licorice. Supple, with a long, spicy finish.
