Catena Zapata ‘Nicolas’ 2016

With its inaugural 1997 vintage, Nicolás Catena Zapata became the first luxury cuvée from Argentina to be exported around the world. The wine recreates the “Original Bordeaux Blend” of the 18th and 19th Centuries, when Malbec dominated over Merlot and was in equal standing to Cabernet Sauvignon in the Médoc. Prephylloxeric Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon massale selections of ungrafted vines give rise to this wine, opening a window to the past from the mountain vineyards of Mendoza, Argentina.

Vintage: 2016
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes

Smooth, very rich and flavoursome red wine. The nose is fruity, with a strong predominance of blackcurrants and tobacco undertones. The palate is soft and full-bodied with spicy notes combined with shells and herbs. Well balanced. Well structured tannins.
