DV Catena Cabernet Franc Historico

Review

red
£10
Bottle of

The Catena family have been making wine in Argentina since 1902 and they’re really good at it. They make wines with altitude, pioneering the development of vineyards in higher altitude spots across the country. And this wine, made by fourth generation vintner Laura Catena and chief winemaker Alejandro Vigil, really shows off Cabernet Franc’s best side. It’s full of flavour: bold, black fruits with a touch of mint and plenty of spice (it’s been aged in oak barrels for a bit). Best sipped fireside, preferably with a plate of stew in front of you. Fantastic value at the moment too (normally £12).
