Thus far on the Quest, this is the undisputed champion Malbec for the Under $10.00 price range. Alamos by Bodega Catena is a winner in every area. The first adjective that comes to mind to describe it is "thick". It's full of flavor and fruit. It's complex and so pleasant. It is a fitting tribute to the Catena family that they are able to make a "budget" wine taste this luxurious and it provides a compelling invitation to try their more expensive wines.
