2008 Catena Zapata Cabernet Franc Angelica Zapata Alta

  • 2008 Bodega Catena Zapata Cabernet Franc AngĂ©lica Zapata Alta - Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo (11/20/2012)
    Dark ruby/black colour. A little reticent initially, but opens up nicely to show aromas of crushed blackberries, blackcurrants, sliced black plums, and just a touch of vanillan. Full-bodied and lush, showing nice texture and a solid, 30-35s. The wine continued to improve over the several hours to bottle was open. Only listed as 13.9% alcohol, but to me it seems a little bit higher - something around 14.5%. I think this wine will improve with a bit of cellaring, but can be enjoyed now. This is a wine made for the domestic market in Argentina, and is not exported. Drink now-2016+. (91 pts.)
