PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
In 1902, Nicola Catena, an Italian immigrant, planted his first vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina. The winery has remained under family control for four generations. Owned today by Nicolás Catena and his daughter Laura, Catena Zapata is known as the pioneer of fine wine from Argentina, and Nicolás is recognized as the vintner who revolutionized wine quality in Argentina. A trained economist, Nicolás began this revolution in the early 1980s and continues to make wines that can be counted among the best in the world. (importer notes)

Today's wine is a monovarietal (100% cabernet sauvignon) from the La Piramide vineyard in Agrelo in Luján de Cuyo, an appellation of Mendoza. Stainless steel fermented and aged for 12 months in 100% new French oak, it has ripe red and black fruit characters laced with cedar, vanilla, clove, and tobacco, with a whiff of black pepper on the long, silky finish.

93 points, Vinous:
"The nose offers notes of roasted red pepper, ash, and ripe blackcurrant along with hints of spice. Broad and expansive in the mouth, the mild palate presents grippy tannins that channel and structure the flow into the pleasant, lengthy, bold finish." 99/22)

92 points, James Suckling:
"Subtle sweet spices and coffee to the currants and sweet tobacco. Elegant and dusty on the palate with high-quality, small-grained tannins." (3/27/23)
