Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

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 familys 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 Pirmide 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. [+]
