"Bright red-ruby. Reticent aromas of blackberry and menthol come across as a bit cooler than those of the Cabernet. Then lusher and sweeter in the mouth, offering good breadth and palate presence to the flavors of dark berries, dried flowers and spices. Finishes with a ripe dusting of tannins and sneaky persistence. A very good value thanks to the extra detail of the 2013 vintage."
|Ernesto felt the need to produce wines that would reflect his basic beliefs: high quality, a different style from the majority of wines being made at the time, smaller volumes and a strong brand concept. In 2002, Ernesto Catena Vineyards was created to express those beliefs.|
