Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Alamos Cabernet shows a deep ruby reddish, purple color. The wine offers an intense and concentrated nose of red berry fruit mixed with touches cedar, mint and sweet spice. The palate is full of ripe, concentrated red currant and cassis fruit flavors with notes of cigar box and spicy black pepper. The finish is long and structured, with finely grained tannins.

About Alamos:

From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catena's high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang time, preserving the fruit's full spectrum of aromas and flavors.

At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed, fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and two to four year old barrels are used to age the wines.
