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.

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.

Just the right mix of sweet, oak and bite. Not as dry and oaky as I was expecting based on other comments. Quite tasty & enjoyable while I'm just relaxing.

I LOVE this Cabernet and need to find more of it stat! The stone fruit is juicy but not sweet, and there is a richness that is outstanding!
