Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from Bodega Catena Zapata's high-altitude vineyards in Mendoza, the Alamos line is consistent in quality and value year after year. From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character with the most gentle and minimal handling of the grapes. The wines have ripe forward fruit with soft, sweet tannins that make them highly approachable upon release.

The 2006 Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon presents a dark purple color with garnet tones. The nose is explosive, with red fruit flavors, sweet spice and a touch of fresh mint. The mouthfeel is full yet soft, with red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cigar box, leather and light notes of eucalyptus. The finish is focused, with finely grained tannins adding structure and length.

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.
