Description
2016 Catena Zapata, Nicolas - Mendoza - 2 Bottle (0.75L)
Red wine - Argentina - 96/100 points, Robert Parker

Note Robert Parker jr. (96p), drink 2020 - 2026:
The 2016 Nicolás Catena Zapata is backward, serious and austere, with terrific balance and great length. This is a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon from Gualtallary and 31% Malbec from Nicasia. There is also some 8% Cabernet Franc that seems to add a touch, and in 2016, it didn't need irrigation because there was enough rain. This seems to follow the style of the 2013, a little tight, perhaps because of the Cabernets. This is nuanced and complex, with very good integration of the varieties and the oak, fruit, acidity and mineral texture. One of the best vintages for this bottling. 74,400 bottles produced.

Catena Zapata is one of the quality leaders in Argentina and their wines are phenomenal!
