2021 Catena Zapata Cabernet Franc San Carlos

SKU #5063668
Winery Notes- The Catena Cabernet Franc Appellation El Cepillo presents a purple color with red ruby tones. The nose offers elegant aromas of spices, and fresh herbs as thyme and rosemary, red berries, cassis and raspberries, with layers of cedar. The mouthfeel is full and rich with cassis, raspberries flavors and notes of black pepper and oregano. The finish is bright and fresh with finely grained tannins.
VINOUS REVIEW: The 2021 Cabernet Franc Catena Appellation San Carlos spent eight months in a third new barrels. Garnet red in hue. The aromas feature ash, hints of bell pepper, jalapeño, jam and chutney. It’s well put together on the palate with a compact, slightly unctuous flow that lingers at its leisure. The finish is a repeat of the nose.
JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: A very juicy cabernet franc with fresh red cherries, olives and spice box. Very expressive and chalky on the palate with a medium body and a linear finish. Some white pepper at the end. Drink now.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The peppery, spicy and elegant 2021 Appellation San Carlos Cabernet Franc is fresh, varietal, nuanced and complex while keeping the alcohol to a moderate 13.6%, which makes it attractive and easy to drink, with nice balance and very fine tannins. I usually like the precision and symmetry in this lively wine that has a velvety mouthfeel. 96,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2021.
