2017 CATENA APPELLATION AGRELO CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$23.00 $23.00

The Catena family pioneered high-altitude farming in Argentina, and along the way, they’ve mastered Bordeaux varietals. Their wines always excite emotion, inspiration, and passion when you taste them, and their 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon from Agrelo is a brilliant example of the great success they’ve had in this area. With dual 91 point scores along with this value price, I don’t think a single case will be enough.

Arising from the family’s historic vineyards in Agrelo, this high-elevation 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from around 3,100 feet. The alluvial origin, intermixed with clay and rock, produces a pure expression of the varietal with a brilliant reflection of its origin.

Entering from a good vintage in Argentina, and one in which the Wine Spectator stated that “characteristically dry weather delivers intensely flavored grapes,” the 2017 Catena Agrelo is supple, layered and vividly expressive. This wine spent around a year in oak and the 2017 vintage is drinking beautifully right now.

Description

2017 CATENA APPELLATION AGRELO CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“…. Next to the 2016, you could see the different climatic conditions of the two vintages, with this 2017 coming through riper and rounder. In any case, it’s a textbook example of Agrelo, with juicy fruit and polished, sweet tannins. This is also a favorite in 2017 and shows a very classical Bordeaux-like profile, peppery, spicy and elegant.
91+ Points
Bright red-ruby. Cassis, leather, musky licorice, spices and tobacco leaf on the nose. The palate delivers captivating subtle sweetness and insidious flavor intensity, with its red and darker berry flavors showing excellent delineation. Harmonious acidity lifts the middle palate but the wine’s firm spine of dusty tannins calls for a couple years of patience. This serious Cabernet finishes with excellent length.
