Catena Alta is an assemblage of historic rows within the Catena family Estate vineyards. The blend of these historic rows, like the marriage of sounds that create a symphony, yields a highly aromatic and elegant wine that speaks for the earth and the vines that have been tended by the Catenas for four generations. The Catena Alta wines can usually be drunk starting at three years after harvest and into the following one to two decades.

Wine EnthusiastWild berry, licorice and plum aromas are solid but quiet. This Cabernet is built on leathery, tough tannins and roasted, savory flavors of saucy berry and plum. A spunky, savory tasting finish is tomatoey and leathery, with leftover sauciness. Drink through 2020.

Wine SpectatorA taut red, with loads of acidity to the dried red currant, raspberry and spiced cherry flavors. Pomegranate and black olive notes linger on the firmly tannic finish. Drink now through 2018. 750 cases imported.
