4.5 stars "Color: dark; Sweetness: dry; Finish: persistent; Spectacular bottle of wine. One of the best I have had from Argentina. Ripe fruit with fragrant nose. Tight right out of the bottle. Needs a few hours to open."

98 points "98 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship, the 2007 Nicolas Catena Zapata, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It delivers an enthralling aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, espresso, mocha, incense, lavender, black currant, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied, powerful yet elegant effort with great depth and volume, precision balance, and a voluptuous personality (a D-cup of a wine). It conceals plenty of structure and will effortlessly evolve for 6-8 years, drinking well through 2032 if not longer. Catena Zapata’s newest releases continue the high standards established by this Bodega virtually from its onset, a tribute to Nicolas Catena who continues to oversee his empire." (Dec 2010) Wine Advocate, Steve Tanzer 93" Best 2011-2032
