Amazing. Ripe juicy dark fruit, junior mints, violets and damp forest floor. Great structure and finish...will age beautifully in the years to come

2006 Catena Zapata - Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Malbec (30%) blend. I continue to find that I prefer Argentine Malbec blended with other grapes. This has a higher Cabernet than I expected but it was great. Harder to find Malbec with age in New York, and the 13-plus years since Argentina’s 2006 harvest really helped mellow this wine. Nice body and the tannins were still very present but softened. Not juicy but still had good fruit with cigar and earth. Enjoyed with bone in rib eye steak and mushrooms.

Solid but not quite great. Needs another 5 yrs in bottle to finish softening the tannins. Nice dark fruit, tobacco, earth. A little large, but good.
