Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 points
"The 2017 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec is from a slightly riper year and has higher alcohol and a little less acidity. But the wine keeps its poise and harmony, showing very classical, perfumed and with volume. Power and elegance. 34,800 bottles were filled after 12 months in oak barrels."

Normally $28, this 92-point classic Malbec from superstar producer Catena Zapata in Mendoza is a true no-brainer for all-the-time drinking!

Catena Zapata dates back to 1902, making wine in the high-altitude Mendoza region, and we scored a simply jaw-dropping price on this “daily drinker” - a rich, round, perfumey Malbec that will hit all your buttons, we promise! We may live in Napa, but we drink a LOT of Malbec!

We bought every case we could but will likely not have enough! While it lasts!

TASTING NOTES 

Lunlunta is an idyllic district of small orchards and tree-lined country roads, well known for its ancient Malbec vines and silty-clay soils. Lunlunta Malbec displays black and red berry aromatics, a lengthy mid-palate and a ripe silky finish.
