    The 2006 Nicolas Catena Zapata is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Malbec and spent 26 months in new French oak. It displays a superb perfume of pain grille, spice box, truffle, wild flowers, black cherry, and black currant. Rich, layered, dense, and complex, it, too, combines elegance and power. The wine is structured for the long haul and should easily see its 25th birthday, with 50 not out of the question. There is no track record, and I won't be around to find out.

    This is very big, but has a pure core of raspberry and plum fruit that courses along well-integrated structure. Loads of spice, black licorice and graphite notes extend through the finish, which shows some elegance to go with its depth. Impressive.

Bodega Catena Zapata is located in the renowned Mendoza wine region of Argentina. Paul Hobbs helped put this winery on the map years ago, and its reputaion has done nothing but continue to rise over the last decade. The inaugural cuvee had its release with the stupendous (in Argentina) 1997 vintage. With the help of his daughter, Laura, owner Nicolas Catena is slated to likely become one of the best known names in the Argentine wine industry. Not too be missed is their Catena "Alta" line of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery's many labels include Nicolas Catena Zapata, Catena Alta, Catena, Alamos, Saint Felicien, DV Catena, Angelica Zapata, and Catena Zapata Estiba Reservada.
