2017 Catena Zapata Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec (750ml)

Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina


I also tasted the just-bottled 2017 Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec, and this is the one that stands out in 2017. It has more finesse and subtleness, with harmony, balance and elegance, getting close to the 2016. Bravo! 36,000 bottles produced.

Bright, full ruby. Very ripe aromas of black fruits, smoky minerals and bitter chocolate, plus a whiff of truffley forest floor. Sweet, supple and quite dense, but showing terrific inner-mouth lift for such a ripe wine. With its crushed-berry flavors, this wine shows the most obvious early sweetness of these appellation-labeled Malbecs. The substantial tannins arrive late and build, giving the wine the support for a slow evolution in bottle. But there's no austerity even today.
