Community Tasting Notes 1

  • br_winelover Likes this wine: 93 points

    August 28, 2021 - 93pts. It was a very small Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino vertical this night - I opened a 2017, and fscov brought this 2018. They are very, very similar - proof that vintages in Argentina really aren't that relevant, except of course the truly difficult ones (like 2021).

    This is more refined than your run-of-the mill Malbec, as it ought to be. Black plum, blackberries and raspberries' notes - quite primary yet, as expected. I decanted my 2017 longer than fscov his 2018, and it made a difference, albeit small - the 2018 was neither really expressive nor nuanced from the get-go, but it did improve with air, and matched the 2017. Both are medium-bodied, and offer a good finish. This bottling is not a great value, but one cannot go wrong here.
