Juicy, with a bright edge to the plum, cherry and licorice notes. The streamlined finish lets a mocha note linger.

– 87 points, James Molesworth (Wine Spectator)
The 2006 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon presents a dark purple color with garnet tones. 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 flavors and notes of roasted espresso and graphite. The finish is bright and fresh with finely grained tannins.

About the Estate:

Nicolás set out to develop his own selection of Argentine Malbec clones planting 145 clones in the La Pirámide vineyard. Of these, he selected the best five and began to plant them in different terroirs and altitudes. The results became more than clear in 2003 when his best Malbec came from the Altamira vineyard where the five clones had been planted in separate rows.

Over the past 20 years, Nicolás 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. Nicolás Catena has planted an almost countless number of varietals and clones throughout his mountain vineyard sites. His research, especially of the Malbec grape, make him a ture pioneer. www.catenawines.com
