Catena Zapata Adrianna Vineyard River Malbec 2018

Categories ,

This is an incredibly special bottling and as you can easily tell from the perfect 100-point score from Suckling and the roaring 99-point review from Parker that this is an all-time collector’s item to behold. It comes from the best winemaker in all of Argentina, in the highest rated vineyard in all of South America.

Just read this Parker review. It says all you need to know…

The 2018 Adrianna Vineyard River Stones is always the freshest and most austere of the three single-plot bottlings from the Adrianna Vineyard on Gualtallary. This fermented with some 70% full clusters, as it was harvested at three different times and the first two fermented with full clusters and the last pick was added de-stemmed to the fermentation. The nose is subtle, elegant and nuanced; the grapes were picked quite early in 2018 and that ensured a vibrant palate with almost citrus (blood orange) sensations. This has very fine tannins, a very fine thread and a dry, long and tasty finish. This is markedly stony, true to the character of the place. Red fruit, textured and mineral.

Original price was: $250.00.Current price is: $220.00.

100 Points, James Suckling – 99 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“This is really something. There’s purity and focus to the aromas of crushed berries, licorice and black tea, which follow through to an integrated palate of extremely fine, melted tannins that spread to the very ends of the wine. This is all about balance and length. It really is an emotional wine. Great follow-up to the 2017, which was also 100 points. Drinkable now, but better after 2024.” -James Suckling
