Pair this wine with beef jerky, preferably terryaki. I know, sounds like a snark and a snide, but it isn't. The intense flavors of the jerky honestly enhances the wine. Wine Harlots likes jerky with Pinot. So there.
The 2007 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon presents a deep, dark violet color with reddish hues. The nose offers intense, focused aromas of ripe cassis and black currant fruit intertwined with notes of tobacco, cedar, and a touch of eucalyptus. The mouthfeel is full and concentrated with layers of rich black berry flavors and elements of frosted mint, espresso and graphite.
I don't know. The Catena is priced in the high teens ($18.00 US), which puts it outside of the semi-official TWC price/value rating system. Not enough bang for the buck.
