Vino sazreva 18 meseci u malim buradima od francuskog hrasta (225l). Vino tamno rubin boje sa ljubičastim tonovima. Na mirisu nudi intezivne arome zrele kupine, crne trešnje I ribizle sa notama bibera I karanfilića. Na ukusu podseća na crnu ribizlu, malinu I vanilu sa notama kedra i duvana. Ovaj Cabernet Sauvignon je punog tela, veoma kompleksno I elegantno vino, svilenkastih tanina I duge završnice.
This is a beautiful cabernet sauvignon with pretty ripe fruit and currants, blackberries and spices. Full and silky. Fine finish. Drink or hold.

The 2012 Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon is produced with grapes from different zones of Mendoza, La Piramide around the winery in Agrelo, Nicasia at 1,095 meters altitude in Altamira in the Uco Valley, and Domingo in Villa Bastias in Tupungato. Harvesting the whites they learn about the vintage and make decisions about the harvest dates for the rest. In the slightly warmer 2012 they harvested a little earlier to keep the freshness. The decision clearly paid off as the wine feels quite Atlantic (a rarity in a warmish year), is subtle, balanced and austere. A Cabernet in uppercase. 30,000 bottles produced.

Foresty, earthy aromas of leather and black fruits are rugged and a touch rustic. In the mouth, this is voluminous and chewy, with fresh acidity. Flavors of licorice, herbs, pepper, plum and blackberry finish with light herbal notes and bright acidity that will ensure a fairly long lifespan. Drink through 2024.

A ripe and deeply spiced red, with dark plum and dried blackberry flavors that are rich and smoky. Fresh acidity provides the backdrop, leading to a long, lingering finish of hoisin sauce and dark chocolate accents. Drink now through 2020.
