Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Catena Zapata Argentino Malbec 2019

The epic tale of the noble Malbec grape is like no other, and the label for Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino pays tribute to the variety’s history in France and its rise in Argentina. Four female figures embody different landmarks in the history of the grape. Eleanor of Aquitaine represents the birth of Malbec.


The Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino shows a saturated dark violet color with ruby reflections; the nose offers cassis, blueberries and violets, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping, lightly saline flavors of mocha, dark berries, spice, and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Published Feb. 3, 2022 - Rated 99:
This is made from over 100-year-old vineyards and offers blackberries with blue fruit and dark chocolate. Shows bark and black truffle undertones, too. Tight and more focused than in past vintages. The quality of the tannins is more precise and fine. Blackberries and black truffles at the end. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Issue 31st Mar. 2021 - Rated 96:
It feels like there was a big change in the 2019 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino, a year with a vibrant palate and very clean and focused aromas and flavors. They fine-tuned the irrigation and viticulture, and that seems to have increased the precision of the wine. They also did a selection and left the grapes from the borders of the vineyard, which were affected by the paths and other stuff. It's still a little more voluptuous than the wines from Gualtallary, as this mixes grapes from Angélica (Lunlunta) and Nicasia (Altamira). It's nicely textured and tasty, medium-bodied and with a vibrant finish.

Wine & Spirits Review - Rated 94:
 A blend of malbec from two vineyards above 3,000 feet of elevation in La Consulta and Lunlunta, this wine’s suave texture is deepened and lengthened by 18 months in new French oak barrels, adding some vanilla flair to the finish. Vigil fermented it with 20 percent of the whole bunches, structuring the sun-ripened black raspberry flavors and rich layers of blueberry complexity. Air brings out the fresher aspects of the wine, hinting at years of development ahead.
