Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard Malbec 2012
Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard Malbec is a dark violet colour. Ripe black-and-red currant, raspberries and an elegant touch of French oak are some of the aromas that we can appreciate from this special Malbec from one of the Catena´s highest family vineyards. Very complex and expressive palate, with a creamy violet flavor with ripe blueberries, cassis, vanilla and spicecake.
Decanter – Typical and gorgeous Malbec aromas of boysenberries, blueberries and raspberries with delicate scents of rose petals. A velvety texture and fine grained tannins support layers of succulent flavours such as dark cherries, flowers, fresh spices, coffee, minerals and some tones of well-judged oak. A serious wine for many years.
Antonio Galloni/Vinous – Good deep ruby. Brilliantly pure aromas of black raspberry, licorice and flowers, with sexy oak tones. Plush, seamless and sweet, offering terrific floral lift to its berry and dark chocolate flavors; shows an uncanny combination of richness and verve. This Malbec has the glossy texture and velvety tannins of a great Pomerol. The slowly rising, extremely long finish saturates the palate with lush fruit
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Could be the best Nicasia ever produced.
