The Agrelo Vineyard is an ideal spot for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The high density planting of over 4,950 vines/ha (2,000 vines /acre), the high altitude climate (at 940m/3,100' above sea level) and the use of controlled irrigation allow us to grow grapes with remarkably full and concentrated flavors.

91 Points - The Wine Advocate "The aromatic array displays toasty black cherry, black raspberry and violet notes leading to a smooth-textured, layered, rich wine bordering on opulence. It manages to achieve this retaining an elegant, light-on-its-feet personality. On the palate, spice notes and a hint of chocolate emerge." 91 Points - Wine Spectator "Enticing, with lots of mocha, fruitcake, raspberry and boysenberry flavors stretched over a lengthy, fleshy finish. A delicious, fruit-driven version. Drink now through 2010."


Winemaker's Notes:

Nicolás Catena Zapata is made from a selection of the best lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec in the Catena Zapata Vineyards. The first Nicolás Catena Zapata was made in 1997, a phenomenal Cabernet Sauvignon vintage in Mendoza. This wine is only produced in outstanding vintage years.
