Catena Zapata Nicholas 2010

Regular price

Notes from James at Lincoln Fine Wines:

"It sounds silly but this is hands down the best wine I've ever tried. It's made from a plant by plant selection from historic lots with the Catena family's high altitude vineyard. This wine has been heralded by wine collectors around the world for its distinctive classic flavors and age-ability.

On the palate, this wine is tremendously complex, unfolding layer upon layer of red currant, eucalyptus, and black pepper flavors . Black cherries and black berries give way to cassis followed by a hint of saline minerality. The wine is remarkably concentrated with a firm tannic structure, providing the back bone for the lush fruit. The finish is long, a foretoken of the long aging potential of this Argentine masterpiece.

Let the Nicolás Catena Zapata open in a decanter while you grill a Bone-in Ribeye Steak to perfection. Then pour yourself a glass of total bliss."
