Bodega Catena Zapata Pinot Noir Alamos 2002

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Comes from the cooler Tupungato area, and shows a rooty, spicy, berry nose along with good color. the palate offers some true Pinot character, a bit of pepper and some leather before turning thin. Finishes light, with a hint of chocolate.

When the seriously talented Nicolaacute;s Catena, founder and owner of Catena Zapata and Alamos, started to produce Pinot Noir (not the first thing one thinks of when one thinks of Argentina), we were very excited. What Catena has done with Andean Chardonnay and Malbec is nothing short of extraordinary. Well, he has provided wine lovers with not only an exceptionally ripe, dense and velvety Pinot Noir, but an almost unbelievable value considering the notorious difficulties that this grape can pose.
