Nicolas Catena Zapata is made from a selection of the best grapes grown in the Catena Zapata vineyards. The wine is only produced in outstanding vintage years. Made in an elegantly modern style, this exceptionally age-worthy wine is deeply aromatic with notes of dark fruit, anise, baking spices, and earth. The palate is layered, deep, and perfectly structured with flavors of blackberry, cherry, raspberry, violet, dark chocolate, and leather. Sweet tannins carry through the long finish.
