Family vintners for over 100 years, the Catenas are recognized for their pioneering role in high-altitude viticulture in Argentina. This Cabernet Franc is sourced from the family´s historic vineyards in San Carlos. Here, the sandy-loam soils and mountainous climate yield a wine with concentrated ripe red berries, a touch of eucalyptus and black pepper, robust tannins and smooth lengthy finish.

The incredible 2019 Appellation San Carlos Cabernet Franc is super elegant, fresh, varietal, nuanced and complex. A wine like this often costs more money than the price point of the appellation range, but it feels like a bargain anyway. This is an updated version of the 2018, with precision and symmetry. It's vibrant and lively, velvety and focused. 72,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2020.

A Cabernet Franc from San Carlos in the Uco Valley, aged in 35% French oak. A wine born of the sun and the cold, offering aromas of raspberry and sour cherry contained within cigar box notes. Smooth on the palate, delivering well-calibrated freshness and firm, fine, grippy tannins that emphasize an open, diaphanous expression with just a little hint of chalk. A flavorful wine.
