    Lavish cassis and black cherry fruit for an entry wine. Bold and fruity with some gentle tannins at the long finish.

    Compared with the 2016, the 2017 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon feels a little riper within its fresh style, with moderate alcohol and good acidity. This always contains small percentages of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and it matured in oak barrels for 12 months.
