November 2022 (Vintage 2021)

The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Catena Appellation Agrelo from Luján de Cuyo was aged for eight months in a third new barrels. Garnet red in hue. The nose offers notes of roasted red pepper, ash and ripe blackcurrant along with hints of spice. Broad and expansive in the mouth, the mild palate presents grippy tannins that channel and structure the flow into the pleasant, lengthy, bold finish

March 2023 (Vintage 2021)

Subtle sweet spices and coffee to the currants and sweet tobacco. Elegant and dusty on the palate with high-quality, small-grained tannins. Flavorful, chalky and long.
