Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2011     
Sku: 1822367

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The Catena family has conducted extensive research into the soils and microclimates of Mendoza's high altitude wine country in the foothills of the Andes mountains. At different altitudes, the family’s Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards express a unique profile of aromas and flavors: the black currant and cassis fruit flavors and ripe, sweet tannins of the La Pirámide vineyard (3,100’ elevation); the spicy aromatics and pepper notes of the Domingo vineyard (3,700’ elevation); the finely grained tannins of the Altamira vineyard (3,870’ elevation); the minerality and notes of eucalyptus of the Adrianna vineyard (5,000’). The blend of these components creates a wine of unique character that has balance, concentration and a strong varietal identity.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Apr 2014)
Moving to the reds, the 2011 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon is complemented by 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The grapes are sourced from different Uco Valley vineyards, Villa Bastias, Altamira, Agrelo and Gualtallary. It is very intense with aromas of black currant and an herbaceous personality in the shape of notes of mint. It has some dusty tannins and pungent flavors in an intense, medium-bodied palate. Approachable and able to age. Drink 2014-2018.
