Bodega Catena Zapata is considered the flagship of the wineries in Argentina. The statement by Robert Parker says a lot: a when all is said and done, Catena Zapata is the Argentina winery of reference, the standard of excellence in the wine offers a beautiful, pure floral bouquet with ripe pomegranate and wild strawberry infused with lovely minerality. 2014 Alta Malbec wine got 93/100 points and we quote from the Wine-lawyer: "I was truly impressed by the Catena Alta Malbec It has a really tasty and lengthy finish A triumph on the vintage."

4/5

A with a nice colour. Smells of hazelnuts and almonds. Light taste.
We took it with meat, but I think the wine would taste better with vegetables or fish.
It is my parents favorite wine.

I drank before the main meal, with starters and snacks. Fine! We enjoyed it.
Outstanding cherry colour with a low layer. Toasty aromas. It has a balanced acidity.
