Catena Zapata 2021 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec "Old Vines"


"The 2021 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec was produced with grapes from vines planted in 1930 at 920 meters in altitude. It fermented with full malolactic and had an élevage of six to eight months in barrels, some 40% of them new. The cool year kept the alcohol to a moderate 13.5% with the depth and wisdom from old vines that somehow transmit a sense of harmony. This classical zone in Maipú produces traditional Malbecs with varietal typicity, floral with berries and herbs and a touch of sweet spices, fresh and balanced with some earthy rusticity and juicy fruit." Robert Parker 92 Points

"A pretty fruity malbec here with a hint of dark olives, spices and strawberries. Lots of fruit on the fleshy, medium-bodied palate with sleek but present tannins." James Suckling 92 Points

 "This medium-bodied red has an intriguing smoky, graphite and clove undercurrent, with a lovely velvety texture. Reveals a core of loam-accented cherry and plum flavors, which linger nicely around polished tannins and a late flash of smoke. Drink now through 2030." Wine Spectator 91 Points
