Our first stop will be Mendoza, Argentina to taste the '11 Catena Malbec.  

Hosts Linda Rez and wine writer and reviewer William Pollard from Wild 4 Washington Wine welcome listeners to call in with their thoughts as we share a glass of wine together.  

In preparation for the show, here's some information about the Mendoza, Argentina wine region from Winebow.com.  Click Here

From the New York Times: "There is something lyrical and renegade embedded in the Argentine soul, not to mention a breezy self-regard that Catena says is the key to what makes Argentina arguable the most exciting wine country on earth right now, a place where Old World and New World are held in balance and ever wine exudes its own personality.  "It's that Argentine arrogance," Laura Catena says with a laugh. "You would never just copy your neighbor, because what you're doing is already the best."
