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.

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.

Color of purple and ruby mix. Nose of nice fermented cabbage, wet mushroom, atypical as a Cab, a bit leather, a bit coffee, and tobacco leaves. Taste is also atypical, with zest and salty earthy note, berry note, tobacco leaves again, the fruit note is really marginal to me. My taste is very difference from described on the bottle, even though the bottle is quite decent. Aftertaste is quite good mellow tannins. Puzzled.
