Join us at 6:30 on Thursday, February 11th, for a tasting of three wines from Catena Zapata in Mendoza, Argentina, with the owner, Dr. Laura Catena. Jancis Robinson said about Nicolas Catena Zapata in The Financial Times: "Nicolás Catena Zapata is justly credited with putting Argentine wines on the world map—by the best expedient of focusing entirely on quality. It's great to know he has started a wine dynasty, too."

Thursday's tasting with include, in this order:

2018 Catena Zapata Catena Chardonnay Appellation Tupungato, $17.99

This comes from two vineyards in Tupungato: one in Villa Bastías and one in Gualtallary. The full clusters were pressed and 80% of the juice fermented in stainless steel while the rest was in oak barrels, then the full volume matured in used French oak barrels for nine months. It has a note of popcorn, a smoky and spicy whiff, and a balanced palate where the acidity is very integrated, fresh but with some density. It's varietal and approachable.

2017 Catena Zapata Catena Cabernet Franc Appellation San Carlos, $19.99

This is from a warmer and slightly riper year and the wine shows softer and riper. It matured in 100% French oak barrels before it was bottled in 2018.

2018 Catena Zapata Catena Malbec "la Consulta", $19.99

The very primary and fruit-driven 2018 Appellation La Consulta Malbec reveals a very varietal personality - juicy, with some of the chalky texture of the stony soils. Easy to enjoy.
