Catena Zapata Alta Malbec 2016 is a premium red wine produced by Bodega Catena Zapata, one of Argentina's most renowned wineries.

The high elevation, coupled with the unique terroir and climate of the region, contributes to the distinctive character and quality of the wine. Catena Zapata Alta Malbec 2016 displays a deep, intense purple color in the glass.

There are also subtle notes of oak from the wine's aging in French oak barrels. On the palate, this Malbec delivers a powerful and concentrated experience. The flavors of black fruits are complemented by layers of cocoa, tobacco, and a touch of earthiness. The wine is well-structured, with velvety tannins and balanced acidity, leading to a long and elegant finish. Catena Zapata Alta Malbec 2016 is a wine of exceptional quality and complexity. It can be enjoyed now with some decanting to allow the flavors to open up, or it can be aged for several years to further enhance its depth and nuances. This wine pairs well with grilled meats, hearty stews, roasted vegetables, and flavorful cheeses. It is a great choice for those seeking a premium Argentine Malbec that showcases the best of the region's terroir and winemaking craftsmanship.
