A sleek, polished style, with alluring mocha and raspberry ganache notes leading the way, backed by dark plum, hoisin sauce and graphite flavors that push through the finish. This has serious weight, but stays focused and driven. Drink now through 2011. 60,000 cases imported. -JMThe purple-colored 2007 Catena Malbec spent 12 months in 35% new French and American oak. The nose reveals balsam wood, vanilla, mocha, cassis, and black cherry. Plush on the palate, this medium-bodied Malbec has layered, spicy flavors, with a touch of tobacco and leather making an appearance. Balanced and lengthy, it will evolve for 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2019.

A stunning Malbec from Aregentina by one of my favorite wine producers (also love their Chardonnays). This wine loaded with dark fruit, structured tannins, hints of spice and soft oak. I had it with a rack of Lamb (dijon crust) followed by decadent dark chocolate souffle. It was a brilliant pairing. -Dimitri
