Catena Malbec 2011


Malbec, and more specifically, malbec from Mendoza is fast becoming my "go to" value wine.  I dare say that if my random selection of wines off a shelf is representative of overall quality and prices, they would keep a few local wineries awake at night.  Aromatics of game meats and blackcurrant.  The palate has medium length, acid and fine grained tannins, with the flavours also reminding of game and blackcurrants.  Enjoyable.  Good
