CATENA CATENA - Nicolás Catena Zapata - 2011

CATENA Nicolás Catena Zapata 2011

96 Points

Consistently among the best red blends in Argentina, and a wine that ages brilliantly, this cuvée includes only 25% Malbec this year, partly because the Agrelo Cabernet was so good in 2012. Last made in 2006, it’s a finely balanced wine that combines the two grapes to perfection, with notes of graphite, cassis, blueberry and subtle oak underpinned by plenty of structure and concentration. 2016-28
