Quick take: Conquista Malbec 2005

With the varietal's characteristic plummy nose and flavor but lighter in tobacco nuances and body, the Conquista Malbec 2005 (Mendoza, Argentina; about $8) is kind of a Malbec Light. Its brighter flavors, mild tannins and pleasant berry finish make it an easy drinker, and a good introduction to the grape.
