Front and back

Review:

The Catena wine range (Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Chardonnay) consists of high altitude wines, made using grapes sourced from different vineyards owned by the Catena family and cultivated at altitudes ranging from 1,000 to almost 1,500 metres above sea level. Each batch is harvested and vinified separately so as to offer an expressive ensemble of great balance.

The Catena Cabernet Sauvignon is a red with plenty of fruit and evidence of oak which will delight lovers of modern-style wines, yet will also captivate with its sweetness, fruitiness and roundedness those who usually shun the powerful and concentrated type of wine; it is extremely well-made and exudes high quality.

A dark and intense Picota cherry colour, this is a lively and energetic wine that shows its varietal character with that first impact on the nose: lots of ripe fruit (blackcurrants and red fruit), fresh and mineral (eucalyptus, pencil lead) notes, smoky and woody (cedar) hints, and a very attractive creamy sweetness; this is an open, elegant wine that pleases right from the start.

It is very juicy on the palate; powerful but also accessible; concentrated and smooth at the same time, with more black fruit than on the nose (blackberries), and with very well-integrated ageing notes; a wine that is complete. On the aftertaste, a fine bitterness begins to appear but is offset by the concentration of fruit and that ever-present sweetness. A Cabernet Sauvignon with a firm structure that will enable it to evolve extremely well in bottle, as befits this variety, yet with such roundness and balance that it could be enjoyed whilst still young, all down to the expert hands of this wine-producing family which can look back on the experience and passion of four generations.
