2008 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon
I swear most wine from Mendoza, Argentina tastes similar - that nutty, earthy flavor - even when it's a Malbec vs. a Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is even a deep purple color like a Malbec as well. Basically, I'm convinced this wine is made from Malbec grapes ;) $15 at Costco is a bit steep for this bottle, although that's a few bucks less than you can find it for on the net. Heavy on dark fruits, with that "Mendoza flavor" (I'm going to trademark that). Not a fan, 3.5/10 - not something I'd pay more than $8 for...and even then, not my style.
