2015 Catena Zapata 'Fortuna Terrae - Adrianna Vineyard' Malbec Mendoza
Winemaker Notes: Over the years, Nicolás Catena Zapata discovered the influence altitude has on fruit quality. As one climbs the altitudes of the Andes the average temperature decreases and the amplitude between day and night temperatures increases. Named after Nicolás Catena Zapata’s youngest daughter, the Adrianna Vineyard is located at almost 5,000 feet elevation in Mendoza.
James Suckling - "Very complex aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of cheese and wet earth. Hot stones, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered with lots of firm yet polished tannins and a gorgeous finish. Succulent. So delicious. You'll want to drink this now! But better in 2020."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Like many other 2015s, there is a little more ripeness in the 2015 Adrianna Vineyard Fortuna Terrae, and the year is more marked and more noticeable in this bottling. It's juicy, floral, expressive and more gentle within the serious and austere profile the place provides. 6,600 bottles were filled in July 2017.”
Tim Atkin - "The third vintage of this elegant, spicy, 80% whole bunch-fermented Malbec, made in more of a “European” style than many of the top Catena reds, is every bit as good as its predecessors. Fresh, tangy and peppery, with skillfully integrated 50% new oak, crunchy red berry fruit and a fine, refreshing finish. 2019-27"
Wine Spectator - "Well-crafted and pure-tasting, with intense, mineral-infused flavors of raspberry, red currant and dried cherry, supported by fresh acidity. The lively finish reverberates with crushed stone and spice notes. Best from 2020 through 2025."
