The flagship the 2007 Nicolas Catena Zapata a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon 20% Malbec and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It delivers an enthralling aromatic array of pain grille pencil lead mineral espresso mocha incense lavender black currant black cherry and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied powerful yet elegant effort with great depth and volume precision balance and a voluptuous personality (a D-cup of a wine). It conceals plenty of structure and will effortlessly evolve for 6-8 years drinking well through 2032 if not longer. Catena Zapata's newest releases continue the high standards established by this Bodega virtually from its onset a tribute to Nicolas Catena who continues to oversee his empire. -Jay Miller

Extremely backward nose offers cassis licorice and caraway seed. Big rich sweet and pliant but with strong underlying structure from the cabernet. Less exotic than the Argentino and more vibrant today but less obviously creamy-sweet and in need of some bottle aging. In fact this is downright youthful. Finishes with palate-saturating flavor and firm slightly medicinal tannins. This cabernet-based blend may be a better bet than the Argentino for those who prefer more classical wines. 93+ points

Dense yet supple with gorgeous blackberry raspberry and plum skin notes revealing layers of wild sage cured olive espresso and spice. Harmonious with fine tannins adding grip as the fruit sails on the mocha-tinged finish...
