Luis Gutierrez, April 2014


"Doctor Nicolas Catena always liked Cabernet Sauvignon so the wine that carries his name has a greater percentage of the noble Bordeaux grape. The 2010 Nicolas Catena Zapata is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Malbec sourced from La Piramide, Domingo, Adrianna and Nicasia. The fresh and balanced 2010 produced good ripeness of the fruit but the acidity was also great and the wine finished with 6.5 grams of acidity and a natural pH of 3.5, as the grapes are selected from cold soils. The first vintage was 1997, but this has to be one of their finest. This has the intensity of the Catena Alta Cabernet and the verticality and austerity of the Adrianna Malbec. It has very good acidity and intensity, while it has some velvety tannins. For a minute I was trying to remember the varietals as the sense of place, the freshness and the earthy sensations clearly take over. A superb bottle of wine. This is a wine to age. Drink 2016-2023."

Stephen Tanzer, March 2015


"(a 75/25 blend of cabernet sauvignon and malbec): Bright, full ruby-red. Terrific verve to the aromas of blackberry, licorice, violet pastille and minerals. At once opulent and elegant, with sexy herbal lift and harmonious acidity giving thrust and clarity to the dark berry flavors. In a more serious, less fruity and less sweet style than the Malbec Argentino, with the structure to support a longer life in bottle. Very classy wine."
