What a bouquet! It’s beguiling, with endless wafts of cut flowers and ripe red fruit. The rest of the experience is not quite at the same level – an unctuous note of black cherry, but not enough depth to sustain it. Still a worthy malbec, but not up to the standard of the 2009 edition. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=718)

The Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 2008 shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping, lightly saline flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.

Great full bodied wine. Smooth, a hint of fruitiness, and pairs well with Italian food.

Typical of some mid-rank Argentine wines of this ilk, I find the robe very dark and inviting. The nose, however, is a bit muted for a 4 year old Cabernet of fairly exalted provenance from the Antipodes. Mostly closed with blackberry confit. Somewhat Médoc-like on entry, though without any youthful asperity - mostly bramble-berry and slightly cooked black fruit. Still, the balance is good and the smooth texture is a big plus. More old-world than new but well made and recommended. The Malbec counterpart to this wine is perhaps more interesting if more rustic...

Blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry on the nose, this full bodied, black cherry driven offering slides across the palate with balance and depth before lingering earth notes resolve into a long smooth finish. Despite its many favorable attributes this offering is a bit too straight forward for my taste and lacks the nuance of the exceptional. Straight forward wine appropriate with meat dishes, pizza and strong cheeses. 90.

Lots of fruit. Maybe plum, cassis and cherry. But nothing seems to dominate. It's just a good blend of flavors. Goes well with grilled meat. The color is a dark purple that looked more like a Syrah than a Cab.

Very deep purplish crimson. Lovely texture and then freshness. This is real sophisticated wine. Can people not see the difference between this and a souped-up blend? Lovely fluidity and refreshment but no meanness. Fruit is fully ripe SO good! 17/20 Jancis Robinson.

A dark, spicy red, featuring cassis and creamy plum pudding notes woven with fine tannins, spice, licorice and smoke hints that stretch out on the jammy finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Express a unique profile of aromas and flavors: the ripe plum fruit flavors and silky texture of the Angelica vineyard; the dark fruit character and pepper notes of the La Pir mide vineyard. The blend of these components creates a wine of unique character that has balance, concentration and a strong varietal identity.

Tannic and slightly dry in the finish, this value should be drunk over the next 2 years. Aromatically displaying lively red as well as black fruits, the medium-bodied 2004 Malbec exhibits lovely breadth in its cherry-packed personality. Expressive, fresh, and satin-textured, it reveals a structured, tannin-filled finish. This excellent value should be drunk over the next 2ndash;3 years.

While Malbec has lost its status as an important blending grape in Bordeaux, it has become the signature red wine of Argentina. This value-priced label comes from Nicolas Catena, one of the finest winemakers in Argentina. With a decadent nose of ripe blackberries and blueberries, and subtle hints of herbs and spice on a lush, long finish, this wine bears a striking resemblance to its higher priced cousin under the Catena label. A value not to be missed.
