I don't like Malbec wines....never had one in the store.....until now!
Adrianna Catena joined forces with Alejandro Vigil, the head winemaker at Catena Zapata, to create this label in 2009. Their goal was to meld modern winemaking techniques with older traditions, like fermenting with ambient yeasts in cement tanks, as they did for a portion of this wine. The brightness and verve of the blend lasts past the smoke of the oak and brings a sense of freshness to the blackberry flavors.
The old world meets new world makes it a great wine. The 10% Cab Franc in the blend is the deal maker.
