A GREAT WINE FROM ARGENTINA

Catena Malbec is absolutely one of the best! Recently taste tested among 13 wine enthusiasts and all agreed it was the best! Fruity, plush with a smooth finish! This is a full bodied wine! Highly recommmend this wine.
Great value

This is a beautiful example of an argentine malbec; a lush, fruit first wine that can stand up to a thick juicy steak. A great value at this price.
delicious

perfect example of a great and reasonably priced malbec. though it is not the best i have ever had, it is the best i got for $15.
This is what Malbec is all about for the buck!

If you haven't tasted Malbec before, you owe it to yourself. It doesn't taste like Cab Sauv, Syrah or Merlot. Catena knows their wine and their Malbec is definitely one of the better ones for the money. Expect - full body, dark fruits, soft tannins (can lie down for 1-3 years), silky texture. A great wine with good piece of steak (with nothing but salt and pepper). visit www.gpci. blogspot.com for more wine reviews.

Nice Malbec, not sure it's worth $15

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
