There is a faint roasted note in the nose of the 2018 Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc, with more Cabernet Franc in this warmer year (compared with 2019). It has a very classical nose, combining the herbal character of the grape with good ripeness of the year, resulting in a very complete wine, nicely textured and with the serious tannins from the variety.

Much smaller in size than the Historic Rows Malbec, this only comes from three areas of
Mendoza - Agrelo, Paraje Altamira and Villa Bastías - and has 7% Cabernet Franc for an
added dimension. Plush, supple and sweet, it has succulent cassis and blackberry fruit, fine tannins, some toasty new oak and balancing acidity.
