Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker Felipe Stahlschmidt describes this wine as rich and expressive, with dark berry fruit and a slight herbal note characteristic of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Attractive black and brown spices fromthe oak aging fill out the mid-palate with fine grained tannins that meld into the wine.

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.
