Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Bodega Catena Zapata is arguably one of the biggest names in Argentinian winemaking. Laura Catena, daughter of Nicolas Catena Zapata, is now the Managing Director and has continued to bring the world amazing wines from this famous wine region. Catena “San Carlos” Cabernet Franc is a single appellation wine sourcing all Cabernet Franc grapes from the family’s historic vineyards in San Carlos. The mountainous climate and sandy soils deliver flavors of ripe red fruit and black pepper with well integrated tannins and a smooth finish. A great introduction to Cab Franc and this wildly important historic winery in Argentina.
