Winemaker Notes

The Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino is one of three high-end Malbecs first released by the winery in 2007. Like its siblings, the wine exemplifies Nicolás Catena's success and pioneering research with the Malbec grape in Mendoza. The grapes for Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 2006 are carefully chosen from three of the winery's best vineyard sites: the Adrianna, the Nicasia and the Angélica.

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Argentino Malbec is a blend of the Nicasia and Adrianna cuvees. Since I have been tasting the Catena wines, this has generally been my preference because it seems to have an extra dimension of complexity. So it is with the 2007 vintage. The Argentino offers a similar aromatic and flavor profile, but with just a bit of extra nuance. It will be most enjoyable to taste these 3 wines side-by-side in another 10 years (or, to be truthful, at any time).
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Lush and very expressive, with a gorgeous mouthfeel to the blueberry, violet, melted black licorice, fig sauce and spice notes. Long and powerful, but not tiring to drink—an impressive feat considering the density of fruit. Drink now through 2014.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Arg­entino is a blend of Catena's three principal malbec vineyards: Adrianna, Nicasia and Angélica. In this warm vintage the aromas and flavors recall sweet blackberries; it’s framed by a powerful structure, the tannins as sinewy as the muscles of a long-distance runner. Wait two or three years for this wine to gain in complexity, or drink it now with roast wild boar.

Catena Laura Catena and the History of Malbec Winery Video

Bodega Catena Zapata is one of Argentina's high altitude Malbec pioneers. The Catena family began making wine in Mendoza in 1902. Nicolas Catena, third generation family vintner, was one of the first to see the potential of Mendoza's mountain vineyards for producing high quality Malbec. In 1994, he became the first Argentine to exprot a world-class bottling of Malbec under the Catena label. Nicolas is joined by his daughter, Dr. Laura Catena, in their relentless pursuit of world-class quality from the family's high altitude vineyards. Laura has done extensive work in introducing Malbec and other varietal plant selections, soil and climate analysis, and sustainable practices throughout Mendoza. Head winemaker, Alejandro Vigil, has been at Catena Zapata since 2002 and works with Laura and Nicolas to make wines that express the family's vineyards and palate.

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
