IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS


Decanter 97 Points
The 2016 vintage is a classic example, a superb blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 31% Malbec and 8% Cabernet Franc that’s still in its infancy. Subdued aromas of cassis, black cherries, and nuanced herbaceous and tobacco notes. A lovely fluid entrance builds on concentration and complexity. Malbec’s seductive juiciness joins a vertical Cabernet structure, tannins, and integrated oak, with a long, lingering finish. A wine to wait for.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96 Points

The 2016 Nicolás Catena Zapata has not been released, and they are going to sell 2017 before it. This is the one wine, together with the Adrianna Vineyard Mundus Bacillus Terrae Malbec, that is sold through the négoce in Bordeaux for Europe and Asia. This is backward, serious, and austere, with terrific balance and great length. This is a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon from Gualtallary and 31% Malbec from Nicasia. There is also some 8% Cabernet Franc that seems to add a touch, and in 2016, it didn't need irrigation because there was enough rain. This seems to follow the style of 2013, a little tight, perhaps because of the Cabernets. This is nuanced and complex, with very good integration of the varieties and the oak, fruit, acidity, and mineral texture. One of the best vintages for this bottling.?

James Suckling 95 Points

This a rich and flavorful red, showing blackcurrants and tobacco. Full-bodied, soft, and fruity with bright and spicy, oyster-shell and fresh-herb character. Serious cabernet blend.

Easy ordering in an incredible price of one of my favorite wines in the world the Nicholas Catena Sapota and a 5 1/2 year-old wine at purchase. Of course, with this wine it’s still a baby
