Located in the far southerly growing region of Altamira in La Consulta, the Nicasia vineyard is the only planting of the special Catena Zapata Selection of Malbec cuttings in this traditional area for Malbec. La Consulta was Nicolás Catena Zapata's father Domingo's preferred Malbec location. Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard Malbec is made from a meticulous vine selection in the best, historic rows of the wine's namesake vineyard. These Zapata Vines are carefully hand-tended and produce extremely low yields. Tasting Notes: Catena Zapata Nicasia Vineyard Malbec is a dark violet Malbec. Ripe black-and-red currant, raspberries and an elegant touch of french oak are some of the aromas that we can appreciate from this special malbec from one of the Catena's highest family vineyards. Very complex and expressive palate, with a creamy violet flavor witih ripe blueberries, cassis, vanilla and spicecake. Food Pairing: Pairs well with roasted veal, shiitake mushrooms, and beef tenderloin.
