  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Bright red-ruby. Tighter and less expressive on the nose today than the cabernet sauvignon, hinting at cassis and licorice pastille. Juicy, supple and surprisingly easygoing on the palate, if a bit less chewy than the cabernet. In a distinctly elegant style, not big or superconcentrated but seamless, generous and already approachable. Finishes with smooth, sweet tannins and noteworthy energy and length.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Dark and jammy, with enough acidity to propel the roasted plum and wild berry compote notes. Layers of smoke, toasted spice and espresso emerge on the rich finish.

  • 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.
