Winemaker Notes

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.

Wine Spectator
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.

Wine Enthusiast
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.

Catena
Bodega Catena Zapata is one of Argentina's high altitude Malbec pioneers. The Catena family began making wine in Mendoza in 1902. Nicolas Catena, third generation family vintner, was one of the first to see the potential of Mendoza's mountain vineyards for producing high quality Malbec. In 1994, he became the first Argentine to export a world-class bottling of Malbec under the Catena label. Nicolas is joined by his daughter, Dr. Laura Catena, in their relentless pursuit of world-class quality from the family's high altitude vineyards. Laura has done extensive work in introducing Malbec and other varietal plant selections, soil and climate analysis, and sustainable practices throughout Mendoza. Head winemaker, Alejandro Vigil, has been at Catena Zapata since 2002 and works with Laura and Nicolas to make wines that express the family's vineyards and palate.
