James Suckling Review
Rated 97
Very deep and dark with enormous concentration but also a lot of finesse. There's some toast and chocolate from oak, as well as great freshness. Stunning harmony and a very long finish that tells a totally fascinating story. A blend of 73% cabernet sauvignon and 27% malbec. Drink in 2020.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 95
Named after the winery's owner, the 2014 Nicolás Catena Zapata is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec that has been produced since 1997. They use grapes from Nicasia, Adrianna and La Pirámide vineyards, mixing grapes from Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo. The blend varies slightly with the year, and in 2014 it is 73% Cabernet and 27% Malbec. It fermented in 225- and 500-liter oak barrels and saw 24 months in barrique. It has developed aromas and feels polished while showing elegance and very classical proportions. Drink 2018-2023.

Wine Tasting Notes
Nicolas Catena Zapata has an intense, deep purple color with bluish-black tones. On the nose, aromas of black fruits - blackberries, black cherries, black plums - predominate with subtle notes of vanilla and dark chocolate intermingled with savory hints of green olive and a stony minerality. On the palate, the wine is tremendously complex, unfolding layer upon layer of red currant, eucalyptus, and black pepper flavors . Black cherries and blackberries give way to cassis followed by a hint of saline minerality. The wine is remarkably concentrated with a firm tannic structure providing the backbone for the lush fruit. The finish is long, a foretoken of the long aging potential of this Argentine masterpiece.
