CATENA “La Consulta” Malbec 2015

(Mendoza, Argentina) $19

You smell the crusty char of the steak as it crackles on the grill. A few minutes later, you smell the warm juices as the meat rests. It’s an agony of temptation, cooking a steak. And so you sip wine while you wait. And pretty soon, the wine itself begins to taste curiously like a steak—richly meaty, savory, salty. Firm in texture but with a soft, succulent core. Some people believe that the wines of a place evolve in concert with the foods of that place. And the two are therefore destined to be a perfect match. Catena’s stellar malbec from the ultra-high-altitude vineyard “La Consulta” is waiting to make your next steak the steak of a lifetime. (13% abv)
