Sample reviews

* Very dark color. Deep flavors of black cherry and chocolate balance with tobacco, pepper scents and minerals. The complexity come from the layers but a switch from smooth texture to an edgy, crisp texture with a rounded level of acidity. Excellent finish that takes the acidity to smokey oak and chewy tannins. Repeater here!!!

* Butterscotch to no end on the nose for me with some bonfire. Very very dry and earthy with red berry notes that carry some tartness like green apple and rhubarb. Long and satisfying finish. Medium bodied to borderline thin.

* Dark black berry fruits chocolate and spice add up to make a classic Malbec. Beautiful.

Entry level wine from a very well regarded producer, at a tenner a bottle it's a bargain,
Taste is like a cleavage - split. I never regarded this Malbec particularly good, Catenas mid-Top range wines however are very good. I can name a bunch of better reds at less than £10 at regular price.

@waitrose: Las Mulas / Torres
CabSav, Waitrose own cabSav, Terre de faiano Primitivo (outstanding), @M&S: Cupcake red velvet , Craft3 (both Malbec and CabSav), Los Molles Syrah..
Sainsbury’s: Apothic red mixed grapes Zinfandel merlot cabSav, Carnivor Zinfandel, Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz CabSav....I could go on, especially if I add a pound or two. If you can only get two , try cupcake from M&S and Terre de Faiano ( often on sale at £7!!) they are wonderful, Terre is also organic.

Mr Defensive?
I think we were all genuinely interested in seeing your list, especially as you stated that taste is personal, but your taste is better.
Thanks for your time, I'll have a look at them.
