CATENA CATENA - Cabernet Sauvignon - 2016

CATENA Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

See the wine detail page

91+ POINTS

The 2016 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon blends grapes from different terroirs of Mendoza and contains some 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, but it's still legally a varietal red. It matured in French and American oak barrels for one year before bottling. The varietal aromas soar from the glass, with a traditional Bordeaux profile. It was harvested early, before March 15th, and it shows in the freshness. These Catena varietals really excel in 2016.
