The flagship wines begin with the purple/black-colored 2005 Nicolas Catena Zapata, a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Malbec. The fruit was sourced from four of the estate?s finest high-elevation vineyards, and aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak. The brooding bouquet delivers pain grille, mineral, violet, scorched earth, pepper, espresso, black cherry, and black raspberry aromas leading to a dense, opulent wine with gobs of savory fruit, ripe tannins, terrific concentration, and a 60-second finish. Allow it 6-8 years in the cellar to reveal its full potential and enjoy it from 2015 to 2030.

Winemaker's Notes:

Only produced in the finest vintages it is a blend of cabernet sauvignon and malbec from the Catena Zapata vineyards.

Tasting Notes:

Catena Zapata Estiba Reservada 2005 has a deep violet colour with red ruby hues. The nose is intense, with complex cedar, ripe red cassis, tobacco and sweet spice. On the palate, a sweet, soft entry leads to a rich wine packed with red fruit and subtle black pepper and eucalyptus flavours. Finishes long and elegant with round, silky tannins. Alejandro Vigil, Chief Winemaker
