I tried a glass of Argentinian Malbec the other night out of curiosity and discovered that it was nothing special. It certainly wasn't as good as a glass of Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. Considering that CFK and the Argentinian Comedy club have asked their public and everyone else in South America not to buy anything British, I won't buy this overrated wine again.

Not any randomly picked one is of course excellent. There are several degrees of quality, as anywhere, and who nows what you drank.
You have to compare equivalent categories, and of course personal tastes have influence too. Some people do like Cabernet more than Malbec, or the opposite.
