Wine Advocate Review
Rated 91+
The 2016 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon blends grapes from different terroirs of Mendoza and contains some 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, but it's still legally a varietal red. It matured in French and American oak barrels for one year before bottling. The varietal aromas soar from the glass, with a traditional Bordeaux profile. It was harvested early, before March 15th, and it shows in the freshness. These Catena varietals really excel in 2016. Drink 2018-2022.

Wine Tasting Notes
The Catena Cabernet Sauvignon shows a dark ruby color with violet tones. On the nose, it offers intense aromas of ripe raspberries and cassis with notes of pepper, clove, and a touch of cedar. On the palate, it is full-bodied and rich and displays layers of black currant and black raspberry with notes of cedar and oregano. This Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant wine with silky tannins that provide structure and a long and persistent finish.

Food Pairings
This very special single vineyard Cabernet is best paired with a thick rib-eye steak or roast leg of lamb. The wine also pairs well with mushroom dishes and salty and fatty smoked meats.
