In turn, the Malbec 2013 from the same winery, also qualified top in the Best Rated Wines qualifying before as the best in the Argentinian Malbec category.

Other great results went to the Estiba Reservada 2004 of Catena Zapata, which featured in the top 10 of the Best Rated Wines and the Best Reds list –having previously qualified top in the Argentinian Bordeaux Blend category– and the Lindaflor La Violeta Malbec 2009 of Bodega Monteviejo which received second place in the Argentinian Malbec and a prominent place in Best Reds too.
