2009Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon-South America-Argentina

Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 presents a dark, opaque violet color with blackish tones. It is a very intense and concentrated wine with ripe black fruit flavors, hints of fresh herbs and sweet spice and layers of leather and cigar box from the French oak barrels. Finely integrated tannins give the wine structure and bright, lively acidity. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Pair with steak, slow-cooked beef, and pasta with meat sauce.

Blending different varietals, different lots and even different vintages is an art as old as winemaking itself. In Bordeaux, the blending of the famous five - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec - is a centuries old art. Each component is thought to add a level of complexity to the wine.

Over the past 20 years, Nicol s and Laura Catena and their vineyard management team have worked tirelessly in the discovery, identification and development of key microclimates in the high altitude wine country of Mendoza, Argentina. Nicol s Catena has planted an almost countless number of varietals and clones throughout his mountain vineyard sites.
