This is a wine for those who enjoy full-flavored, New World-style red wines. The malbec grape's ancestry may be French but this is a very Argentine wine from the exceptional Catena winery. It's a full-bodied, creamy-textured wine with enormous blackberry fruit and a distinct but pleasant gamy quality and hints of coffee and chocolate. It's fully dry, but there are echoes of the flavor of a good vintage Porto. Wine Find: 2008 Alamos Seleccion Malbec From: Mendoza, Argentina Price: $20 Serve with: Hearty stews, game, beef
