Bodega Catena Zapata-Catena Alta-Chardonnay-Adrianna Vineyard-Domingo Vineyard-High Altitude Lots-Mendoza-Argentina-2008-13.9% Alcohol-$22.53-A bold nose of citrus and spice, golden yellow in color.  A full bodied complex Chard, with honey, apple, peach, buttered popcorn, with a long acidic spice finish.  A fantastic white, at it’s peak, a great QPR.   I met Laura Catena a couple years ago, a great lady and winemaker.          RP-92          WS-88          WE-86          CR-92          Good with seafood, cheese, salads.
