94 Points James Suckling - "A fruity and bright cabernet sauvignon. So perfumed with currants and rose bush. Full body, firm tannic backbone and beautiful acidity. Long and tangy. Vibrant. Drink now or hold."
93 Points Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - "The 2013 Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon is ultra classical, with textbook varietal aromas and great freshness. The climatic conditions of the growing season seem to have worked perfectly for Cabernet in the higher altitude zones and this is a great example. The palate has very fine tannins and lively acidity. There is superb balance here."
The Catena Cabernet Sauvignon shows a dark ruby color with violet tones. On the nose, it offers intense aromas of ripe raspberries, and cassis with notes of pepper and clove. On the palate, it is full-bodied and rich and displays layers of black currant and black raspberry with notes of cedar, tobacco and leather. This Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant wine with silky tannins that provide structure and a long and persistent finish.
