The 2006 Nicolas Catena Zapata is composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 5%
Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot 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.

The Wine Advocate
"Full, bright ruby. Black cherry, dark raspberry, cassis and a whiff of graphite on the very ripe but reticent nose. Then sweet, creamy and suave on the palate, more sappy and less open-knit than the Argentino malbec but utterly seamless nevertheless. Very long and firmly tannic on the aftertaste. This wonderfully plump, deep, elegantly styled wine showed even stronger fruit, and a slightly liqueur-like chocolatey ripeness, after 48 hours in the recorked bottle. "
International Wine Cellar
"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. "
"Fruity, floral and calm on the nose, with nothing aggresive or out of place. The palate is deep, flush and offers great mouthfeel. while the flavors run toward big, juicy berry, cassis and chocolate. Like most Catena high-enders, this Cabernet-Malbec blend features a toasty finish of coffee and mocha, and overall it's stylish and impressive. Drink now through 2014."
