A wine being hawked by a big box wine store. Not sure why “Reserve” is put on a $13 wine?? Aromas of berry and smoky spicy. Cherry and tart plum flavors with sharp pepper spice and herbal notes. Rugged tannins makes it difficult to enjoy. Needs a big food dish. Pass. Tasting Sample. Consistent notes from the ‘16 I tasted last year.

Made from grapes of surplus grapes from Nicolas Catena's properties. This vintage is more supple than he last, but retains its signature black fruit and elegance. Simply, I outperforms any Cabernet from Napa that is twice its price.

Had with Italian. Light bodied. Not overly acidic. Good but unremarkable.

Oaky aroma- delightful! Dry taste all the way through, but only the slightest of tannins, which is a pleasant surprise for a dry red at this price point. Mild to moderate acid. A great wine for spring and summer.
