Wine description in the mid-nineties in an effort to produce a super-premium wine the winemaking team of catena began an in-depth investigation into the yields from specially selected high altitude vineyards idedntifying the individual rows that produce the best fruit. Catena alta is an assemblage of these historic rows within the catena family’s estate vineyards. The blend of these rows like the blend of musical notes that compose a symphony creates a wine that is layered and complex concentrated yet nuanced. Before the world recognized argentina as malbec country ” bodega catena zapata was known for its old world style cabernet sauvignon born in the clay soils of agrelo. The family cherishes its historic cabernet sauvignon vineyards in agrelo and tupungato particularly for the ageability and classic varietal characteristics of the wines produced from their grapes. Catena alta cabernet sauvignon is sourced from block 3 of the la piramide vineyard in the agrelo district of lujan de cuyo block 2 of the domingo vineyard in the villa bastias district of tupungato and block 2 of the nicasia vineyard in the altamira district of san carlos in the southern end of the uco valley. Tasting notes 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. Food pairing pair this cabernet with red meats like steak or lamb demi-glace sauces or with chateaubriand for an elegant and special dinner.
