Alamos The Wines of Catena Malbec 2009, Mendoza, Argentina: Vintages Wine Panel: Catena’s Alamos Malbec is always a fine ambassador for Argentina’s signature grape. Be prepared for a rich, full-bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavours of raspberry and cassis blessed with heavenly doses of chocolate and sweet spice from the light oak ageing. My note: A pleasant sipper with lovely blackberry aromas. Medium- to full-bodied and smooth. A solidly made wine with terrific balance. Ripe blackberries and pepper. Perfect for barbecue and movie night. Drink: 2010-2014. 467951 13.50% D 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 88/100. December 10, 2011 Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine Full Review
Southbrook Vineyards Connect Red 2013, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario VQA, Canada: This Niagara red wine blend is made from 100% organically grown grapes by Southbrook Vineyards. It's the budget brand for the winery, but still delivers at its price point. Aromas of tart cherries and new earth. Pair with grilled chicken.
