It’s juicy it’s scrummy it’s not a wee bit glummy. It’s....great Malbec at a friendly price! Omg. Ripe and fresh. A little simple but I have no complaints. Curious to see how the zapata levels up

Definitely did not think this was malbec, but made sense after looking at my notes.

I really like this wine. Bold fruit flavor paired with Beecher's tangy flagship cheese. Great treat!!

Fresh and black with good minerality and balance. A bit pedestrian.

This wine was a good balance for our meal of beef filets with a Southwestern rub and chipotle mashed potatoes. Good body, nice fruit tones.

Very bright out of the bottle with fairly acidic black fruits. It develops well into a velvety red with hints of leather, oak and black pepper. Medium+ tannins and finish. Definitely will drink again!

2006 Catena Malbec priced at $40. Made from high-altitude grapes grown at the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina, this wine features flavors of black cherry, black raspberry and mocha. Enjoyable with or without food.
