Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard River Malbec 2018

This cuvée takes its name from a small parcel of the Adrianna Vineyard that is completely covered with oval white stones and was the site of an ancient riverbed. The abundant stones provide optimal drainage and extreme temperatures. They absorb heat and moderate the nights, but also function like ice cubes after a very cold night. Stony soil Malbecs tend to be extremely aromatic, rich and luxurious, just like the River Malbec from Adrianna. This wine can be enjoyed young or aged for decades.

Notes of floral, exuberant, lengthy smooth tannins, metallic on the nose and pallet.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Published January 26, 2021 - Rated 100:
This is really something. There’s purity and focus to the aromas of crushed berries, licorice and black tea, which follow through to an integrated palate of extremely fine, melted tannins that spread to the very ends of the wine. This is all about balance and length. It really is an emotional wine. Great follow-up to the 2017, which was also 100 points. Drinkable now, but better after 2024.

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Dec 31, 2021 - Rated 93:
Structured and well-knit, with rich acidity backing red currant and dark cherry flavors that show notes of black olive. Slate and tarry hints midpalate lead to a finish powered by accents of forest floor. Drink now through 2028. 430 cases made, 150 cases imported. — KM

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 2/1/2018 - Rated 91:
This wine's dark, smoky berry aromas include a reedy note. A selection from the rockiest part of the Adrianna Vineyard in Tupungato, it's so racy and bright that it's sharp and tangy on the palate. Its toasty red berry, plum and spice flavors finish with unusually high acidity. Drink through 2035. MICHAEL SCHACHNER
