CATENA CATENA - Nicolás Catena Zapata - 2016

CATENA Nicolás Catena Zapata 2016

See the wine detail page

97 Points

Consistently among the best red blends in Argentina, Nicolás combines Cabernet Sauvignon with 31% Malbec, aged in 20% new wood in 2016. There was no Agrelo component in this vintage, so it’s a cuvée from Gualtallary and Paraje Altamira. Elegant, perfumed and refined, this reflects the cooler vintage.
