Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon 2006


Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from small, carefully selected estate-grown lots in two of the Catena family’s Andean vineyards: La Piramide vineyard (50%) and Domingo vineyard (50%). The blend of these historic lots, like the marriage of sounds that create a symphony, yields a highly aromatic and elegant wine that speaks for the earth and the vines that have been tended by the Catenas for four generations.
