Catena Zabata Alamos Malbec
Argentina is a fast-ascending force in the wine world but the Catena family has been hand harvesting its vineyards on the Andean foothills of Mendoza for more than a century. Argentina’s talents with malbec are widely celebrated, and this is a particularly refined introduction. Impressively supple black fruit density is toned by refreshingly low alcohol and savoury tomato nuances, with warm, fruit-filled generosity effortlessly countering malbec’s bracing but finely woven tannins and texture reminiscent of high cocoa dark chocolate. $16 at East End Cellars, Prince Wine Store and Wine Box Warehouse.
