Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 92/100
Full-bodied, juicy and savoury with meaty bacon notes that are so good. No bell pepper here my friends. Layers of lapped up luxury. Pair with grilled lamb.
Cabernet Franc food pairings: roast turkey, stuffed breast of veal, pork tenderloin.
Voluptuous Veal Wine

Gorgeous, voluptuous contours , full-bodied and supple. Smooth, well integrated, well balanced, complex. Graphite, blackberry, blueberry, pomegranate. Medium acidity, tannins, medium plus fruit. Crowd pleasing, with lots going on for the connoisseur in the group. Pair with braised beef and roasted root vegetables. Tasted 2014 vintage in Sept 2017. 92 points. Great value. BespokeTastings
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of red berry, and bramble, oak, smoke, and a hint of tobacco. Full bodied, smooth on the palate, with soft tannins, and bright acidity. Fruit is bright and fresh on the palate, with hints of smoke and oak on the finish. Enjoy with marinated beef kebabs or mushroom based dishes.
|Chip Corbeil rated this wine as 70/100 with the following review:|
Empyreumatique et suret. Trop cher pour le goût
|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
Tasted Sept. 17, 2017. Colour deep ruby, with good medium legs. Aromas and flavours, dried raspberry, forest floor, hint of eucalyptus. Taste, dry, dried fruit, medium mouthfeel, soft tannins, finishes with red fruit and mouthwatering. Ready to taste again. Easy to drink a wonderful expression of the single varietal Cabernet Franc from a high altitude vineyard. Open the wine 1 hr before drinking. Pair it with duck or turkey. Or as I did enjoy on its own.
|Catena Appellation San Carlos (2014) is a juicy Cabernet Franc from Mendoza made by the iconic Cantena family. The Catena family have always been leading lights in Argentina's rise. Their Appellation series is modelled after the Burgundy system where village names become synonymous with the distinctive wines produced there. - Community Wine Reviews|
