CATENA CATENA - Zapata Adrianna Mundus Bacillus Terrae - 2010

CATENA Zapata Adrianna Mundus Bacillus Terrae 2010

See the wine detail page


Bright, deep ruby-red. Exhilarating perfume of flowers, minerals and white peach, with dark berries in the background. Deep, tactile, saline and energetic, boasting outstanding inner-mouth perfume. If the Nicasia Vineyard wine is horizontal, this one is more backward and vertical. Finishes sappy and long, with terrific lift. This utterly fascinating and firmly structured malbec held up beautifully for four days in the recorked bottle.

Stephen Tanzer, March 2014
