Of the five or six ($10-20) Malbecs I have tasted thus far, the 2008 Catena is my favorite. This wine has a beet-red glow and a dark berry aroma with floral overtones. Gary Vaynerchuck of Wine Library TV described this wine as sweet, but I disagree. For me, this Malbec displays a strong presence of dark fruit, tobacco, and leather concentrated mostly in the back of the palate (with little, if any, of the mid-palate fructose flavor prominent in many Zinfandels). The flavor is smooth and mellow with a lingering finish of cracked pepper and tannins that will leave you puckering pleasantly and craving the next sip.

This is serious Malbec: ripe and rich with aromas of blackberries and cherries, it has a finish that lingers on, with black fruits and firm flavors of spice.

Don't miss out on this Malbec. It is ripe and rich with aromas of blackberries and cherries, while the finish lingers with black fruits and hints of spice.
