Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96 pts - It feels like there was a big change in the 2019 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino, a year with a vibrant palate and very clean and focused aromas and flavors. They fine-tuned the irrigation and viticulture, and that seems to have increased the precision of the wine. They also did a selection and left the grapes from the borders of the vineyard, which were affected by the paths and other stuff. It's still a little more voluptuous than the wines from Gualtallary, as this mixes grapes from Angélica (Lunlunta) and Nicasia (Altamira). It's nicely textured and tasty, medium-bodied and with a vibrant finish. 25,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2020.

20% whole cluster and 80% whole berry fruit, barrel fermented in new French oak barrels for 28 days with wild yeasts, and then aged for 18 months. The label pays tribute to the variety's 
history in France and its rise in Argentina, with 4 female figures embodying different landmarks in the history of the grape.
