Slightly chewy feel throughout, with medium-weight briar, black currant and toast flavors. Drink now.
Offers a focused nose of red fruit mixed with notes of eucalyptus and sweet spices. The palate is full of ripe, concentrated cassis and red currant fruit flavors with light touches of cedar spice and black pepper.
The spicy blackberry-scented 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers a light to medium-bodied core of sweet dark fruits. Tannic and slightly dry in the finish, this value should be drunk over the next 2 years.
Made from grapes grown on the eastern slopes of the low mountains of the great Andes. Remarkably rich, supple and full bodied; perfect with grilled meats and other hearty dishes.
One would be hard pressed to find a wine that is this structured and sophisticated for less than $20. The nose has some blackberry and mint, and on the palate there are lots of red raspberries, black cherry and some herbs. The backbone and elegance of this wine really make it one of the best deals in the store right now. Pick it up and serve with hearty meats or just fun. Catena has done it again.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon spent nine months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it reveals aromas of cedar, spice box, cassis, and black currant. On the palate it is medium-bodied with ample savory fruit, good depth, and a medium-long finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
This is packed with plenty of cassis, plum and blackberry fruit, along with lots of sweet, caressing toast as well. Slightly firm finish should flesh out soon enough, as there is lots of gutsy fruit here. Drink now through 2005.
From the western edge of Argentina in the high-altitude vineyards of Mendoza's wine country comes this special Alamos wine, representing the high art of blending. Using grapes from many distinct microclimates, Alamos wines are blended to create flavorful, drinkable wines that preserve each variety's distinctive flavors, aromas and textures. Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of red fruit flavors, sweet spice and a touch of fresh mint. Garnet jewel toned, this Cabernet Sauvignon is full and soft with layers of red currant and cassis, notes of cigar box, leather and ripe black fruits. The wine finishes with finely grained tannins that add structure and length.
