Catena Zapata, Nicolás Catena Zapata

Catena Zapata, Nicolás Catena Zapata 2018

A sit-up-and-take-notice wine. Inky colour, smooth tannins, still young and crouched but already combining subtlety and confidence. On the palate, you get a wall of liquorice, crushed cardamom, rosemary, cassis, liqueur, all expertly delivered by winemaker Fernando Buscema. Sensational wine. Tasted twice, with the same impression each time, of a wine full of life and interest. Bottled unfiltered and unfined.
