While it can be beneficial to be known for a particular grape or style, it is somewhat discomfiting to see the homogenization of wines. Argentina has found great success with Malbec, particularly with Malbec produced in a rich, bold, fruit forward style. Whether this style translates well to Cabernet for Argentina has yet to be seen, and is for the market to decide. To my palate, many Argentine Cabernets are sacrificing their Cabernet-ness to this Argentine style.
