2015 'Nicolas Catena Zapata', Catena Zapata, Mendoza
"Juicy and stylish in a European style, conveying an impression of delicacy and terrific penetration." - Stephen Tanzer (Vinous)
"A giant. Not only in Argentina's strong suit in terms of power, it also shows finesse and aromatic complexity." - James Suckling
From an estate created over a century ago; Catena Zapata was one of the very earliest pioneers of Malbec in Argentina. Producing high altitude expressions of these classic European grape varietals, their star Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon blend 'Nicolás Zapata' has been referred to in glowing terms by the world's greatest critics, leading Robert Parker Jr. to say of the 2004 vintage...
"It strikes me as being Argentina's equivalent of a great vintage of Lafite-Rothschild" - Robert Parker Jr.
We couldn't agree more with Stephen Tanzer (Vinous) and James Suckling who acknowledge an almost European style to the wine, with excellent finesse and refinement to the palate. It offers incredible value for a wine of world-class quality.
For those wine lovers who seek the clarity of fruit from the new world, but enjoy refined tannin structure of Europe, this feels like an exciting mid-way point that manages to successfully marry both components. Put simply, this is one of Argentinas very greatest wines.
