  • Rating 90
  • Year 2010
  • Region Mendoza
  • Varietal Malbec
  • Food Pairing Grilled beef or roast duck
  • Price $19.95

From a winery that played a big role in putting Argentine malbec on the global map, Catena’s 2010 lays out the appeal beautifully. It’s full, juicy and smooth, with generous dark fruit, espresso and chocolate characters filling the palate. Then it gets serious in the second act, with dry tannins for backbone and good cellaring potential of six to eight years. Grilled beef or roast duck would be grand. $21.99 in B.C., $21.50 in Sask., $21.95 in Que., $25.49 in N.B., $24.79 in N.S., $22.65 in Nfld., $23.99 in PEI.
