#70 Jeb Dunnuck’s Top 100 Wines of 2019

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. James Suckling

One of the standouts in this stacked lineup is the 2014 Nicolas Catena Zapata, 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Malbec sourced from a multitude of vineyards (La Pirámide, Domingo, Adrianna and Nicasia Vineyards) that spent two years in new French oak. Boasting a deep ruby/purple color as well as blockbuster notes of crème de cassis, damp earth, classy oak, white flowers, and tobacco leaf, this beauty is full-bodied, deep, and layered on the palate, with both richness and freshness. Made in a semi-classic style, with textbook Cabernet notes as well as a polished, pure, ripe style, it’s a brilliant wine from this estate that will keep for two decades or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

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. 62,400 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2016. LG – The Wine Advocate
