The flagship, the 2007 Nicolas Catena Zapata, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It delivers an enthralling aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, espresso, mocha, incense, lavender, black currant, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied, powerful yet elegant effort with great depth and volume, precision balance, and a voluptuous personality (a D-cup of a wine). It conceals plenty of structure and will effortlessly evolve for 6-8 years, drinking well through 2032 if not longer. Drink through 2032. (JM)
A ripe, modern success with everything a fan of New World reds might want. The nose is floral and beautiful, with fine oak scents supporting brilliant raspberry, plum and spice aromas. It's deep, smooth and pressing in the mouth, with a delicious set of blackberry, coconut, vanilla and creamy flavors. (MS)
(70% cabernet sauvignon, 20% malbec, the rest petit verdot and cabernet franc) Saturated ruby. Extremely backward nose offers cassis, licorice and caraway seed. Big, rich, sweet and pliant but with strong underlying structure from the cabernet. Less exotic than the Argentino and more vibrant today but less obviously creamy-sweet and in need of some bottle aging. In fact, this is downright youthful. Finishes with palate-saturating flavor and firm, slightly medicinal tannins. This cabernet-based blend may be a better bet than the Argentino for those who prefer more classical wines. (ST) 93+
Dense yet supple, with gorgeous blackberry, raspberry and plum skin notes revealing layers of wild sage, cured olive, espresso and spice. Harmonious, with fine tannins adding grip, as the fruit sails on the mocha-tinged finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. (JM)
