Catena Historico Cabernet Franc 2019

Catena Historico Cabernet Franc 2019 image

One of the most enticing examples of Cabernet Franc I have tasted recently.  Made by the famous Catena family in Mendoza with Cabernet Franc grapes sourced from the family's historic vineyard in San Carlos with sandy loam soils at 1090m altitude.  This is a very lush soft rounded example of the grape with rich berried fruit and peppery long finish - clearly Cabernet Franc works well in Argentina grown at high altitude.  Great value too.
