Wine Advocate 92
"The flagship 2006 Catalina is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Carmenere, and 7% Cabernet Franc aged for 14 months in new French oak. It delivers an expressive perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, blackcurrant, and blackberry. Round, ripe, and plush on the palate, it has excellent grip, savory flavors, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Its drinking window will be open from 2013 to 2026.
Santa Ema makes reliably excellent wines at fair prices from the bottom to the top of its portfolio."~JM
