The Catena Cabernet Sauvignon shows a dark ruby color with violet tones. On the nose, it offers intense aromas of ripe blackberry, black cherry, and cassis with notes of pepper, clove, and a touch of cedar. On the palate, it is full-bodied and rich and displays layers of black currant and black raspberry with notes of cedar, tobacco and vanilla. This Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant wine with silky tannins that provide structure and a long and persistent finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon contains 12% of whole-cluster Cabernet Franc and the grapes are sourced from the vineyards of La Piramide around their impressive winery in Agrelo, Nicasia at 1,095 meters altitude in Altamira in the Uco Valley and Domingo. 2010 is a fresh and balanced vintage and this wine, which fermented in used 225-liter barrels, reflects it very well: is very fresh, with a strong herbaceous note of mint, very intense but the aromas are really more about the soil and less about the fruit, which gives it a serious character, a Cabernet no doubt helped by the addition of Cabernet Franc, with great acidity and a fine texture. A superb wine. Drink 2015-2020.

Wine SpectatorFine and focused, sporting a core of ripe cassis and macerated cherry, marked by medium tannins and nuances of spice, mocha and graphite. Drink now through 2016. 800 cases imported.
