BODEGA CATENA ZAPATA Cabernet Sauvignon 'Alta' 2014

Sourced from high altitude vineyards, La Piramide and Domingo, set on sandy loam, this wine was aged for 18 months in French barriques prior to bottling. Intriguingly this wine has 10% Cabernet Franc blended into the Cabernet Sauvignon. This inky colored red begins with aromatics of crushed mint, black tea, mocha and suggestions of eucalyptus. The plush mouthfeel is really lovely, as this wine delivers black tea, mocha, crushed mint and black olive flavors that sit alongside brisk minerality. The savory aspects of this wine and the salinity are striking. This is another outstanding Cabernet from winemaker Alejandro Vigil. (Best 2018-2030) - October, 2017 (OB)
