Angélica Zapata Malbec Alta is a blend of Malbec grapes sourced from different vineyards. The result is a wine of great concentration and elegance. The Angélica Vineyard offers ripe plum jammy flavors with a soft, supple mouthfeel. La Pirámide Vineyard lends intense black berry fruit with spicy black pepper and clove. Altamira provides elegance and freshness on the palate with a flavor profile of red berry fruit. Lot 3 from Adrianna Vineyard is intensely floral, with hints of violets and lavender, while lot 9 provides a deeply violet color and a long persistent finish of cassis flavors and mineral notes. These five elements contribute to wonderful complexity in the final blend.
