Wine: Catena Zapata, Malbec (Argentina)

Catena Zapata, Malbec 2008 (Mendoza, Argentina)
This is the red wine that we had at Sydney's for my husband's company Christmas party.

It was very nice. I've been developing my palate for the last couple of years but still need to learn the proper terms to describe things. Malbec is one of my favourites. It's rich and deep yet very smooth. It is a very dark wine that goes well with steak and other red meats. I had it with salmon and it worked perfectly fine.

Update: The winery found my tweet! Now I wished I would have written more about these guys...
