Remember my post about the $50 bottle of wine I accidentally bought? Well, last night we decided to open up in celebration of my birthday. It was worth the wait!
Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2004 was lush with a long smooth finish. A definite treat. Plus any time I can try a wine that the Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator rate a 93 I will not pass it up.
WS says of the wine, "Gorgeous, streamlined, modern Cabernet, with cocoa powder, loam, fig paste and molten chocolate notes that glide over ripe, well-embedded tannins. Long, dark finish is really alluring." I concur!
