CATENA CATENA - Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Malbec River Stones - 2014

CATENA Zapata Adrianna Vineyard Malbec River Stones 2014

See the wine detail page

96 Points

Sourced, as its name suggests, from alluvial soils on the site of an old river bed, this is a
fresh, focused, beautifully balanced Malbec showing refined oak, smooth tannins and top
notes of violet and cracked pepper. Sappy, fresh and very long on the palate.
