Didn't realize I had bought a Malbec - Cab mix. Was surprised when I tasted it. Good.

Love the square sided bottle and top. Very average wine. Much better options from Argentina. Surprised Catena's name is on it.

A Cab Sauv & Argie Malbec blend. 14.5% but the alcohol is well balanced with the other elements, resulting in a velvety mouth feel and good finish.

Terrific value on this cab/malbec blend that ages very well. I drank my last 2005 in 2017, and a 2008 in 2018, and if you leave it opened for over an hour and decant it, very fee people will guess you paid around $15 for this wine. Every bottle I open is a gratifying surprise and, since I’m running out, I will get a new case and hide it for a few years!
It is medium bodied, elegant, easy to drink.

Well balanced, mature, smooth and with supple tannins. Bags of rich black currant, hints of leather
