2017 Catena Cabernet Franc San Carlos (750ml)

Cabernet Franc from Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina

Bright medium ruby-red. Classic aromatic Cabernet Franc nose offers blackberry, spices and violet, plus a faint hint of creosote. Concentrated, floral and energetic, delivering a wonderfully suave, fine-grained texture and a sexy oak element. The finish features building tannins and rising spicy length. A distinctly serious Cabernet Franc for aging. Vigil told me he considers this to be a perfect example of the variety.

Along with the 2016, I also tasted the following vintage, the 2017 Appellation San Carlos Cabernet Franc. This is from a warmer and slightly riper year, and the wine shows softer and riper. It matured in 100% French oak barrels before it was bottled in 2018. 33,000 bottles produced.
