Catena Alta 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon presents a dark, opaque violet color with blackish tones. Very intense and concentrate wine. With aromas of ripe black fruits, hints of tobacco and vanilla from the French oak barrels. The palate is full and rich with concentrated flavors of cassis and spicy notes. Tannins that gives structure, bright, and lively acidity.
"The 2008 Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in 80% new French oak for 18 months and 24 months in bottle prior to release. Wood smoke, pencil lead, exotic spices, violets, and black currants set the stage for a savory, ripe, layered, and impeccably balanced wine with several years of aging potential. Drink this lengthy effort from 2013 to 2023. "
