Catena Zapata Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

SKU 890464440160


The 2008 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon presents a dark purple color with tones of garnet. The nose offers intense aromas of ripe black currant fruit with layers of eastern spice, cedar, and a touch of fresh herbs. The mouthfeel is full and rich with layers of cassis and notes of roasted espresso and graphite. The finish is bright and fresh with finely grained tannins.

Wine SpectatorThis is solid, with dense but polished structure holding the weighty core of plum, fig paste and black currant preserves together. The dark, lengthy finish lets a nice Kenya AA coffee note chime in. Drink now through 2013. 32,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBig and burly, with a semi- syrupy nose that brings berry jam, molasses, shoe polish and crusty, baked berry aromas. But don't dismiss this Cab as overripe and over the top; it is complete and balanced, with good acidity pushing black fruit, chocolate, clove and herb flavors to their maximum expression. And it dials it in on the finish, where cola and coffee notes are just right. Drink now through 2010.
