Saint Felicien Malbec - Bodega Catena Zapata

Saint Felicien Malbec

WINE DESCRIPTION

Saint Felicien Malbec is an elegant, complex wine of a deep violet color, typical of Argentine Malbec. The nose is rich with concentrated ripe blackberry laced with subtle vanilla, tobacco and liqueur flavors. On the palate, an enticing, sweet entry leads to a complex wine, of soft round tannins that are characteristic of the “Angelica” vineyard. Finishes long and lingering with great ageing potential.
