Alta Vista’s Terroir Selection Cabernet Sauvignon thoughtfully blends two estate vineyards in a unique proportion each vintage. Albaneve and Temis, in different appellations within the Uco Valley, each bring a unique character to this distinctive Cabernet which is then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Harvest Note
A cold and dry winter gave way to a dry spring, with periodic threat of frosts. Thankfully, Alta Vista fared well and welcomed a warm and dry summer leading to an early harvest. The dry vintage reduced yields somewhat although the vines remained healthy. A quick and skilled harvest assured good acid balance in the finished wines.
Tasting Note
Elegant and intense on the nose, an attack of ripe red fruit aromas with fresh spice coming through, like thyme and paprika. A hint of wood, cinnamon and vanilla. On the palate, fresh and lively, yet firm. Polished tannins, the final and perfect touch to this harmonious wine.
