Catena 2020 Cabernet Franc San Carlos 750ml
The 2020 Cabernet Franc Catena Appellation San Carlos is made with grapes from three vineyards planted in alluvial soils rich in calcium carbonate and aged for eight months in French barrels. The attractive nose presents ripe redcurrant with hints of country herb, mint and a touch of jalapeño followed by subtle aromas from the aging process. The compact palate offers chalky tannins and a very finely grained texture. A precise freshness adds energy in the mouth and enhances the juiciness.
