Tasting notes
Alamos Malbec shows the unique potential of this most Argentine of grapes. With a deep, dark violet color, the wine has a concentrated nose of black stone fruits with a touch of toast from light oak aging. The palate is full and round with black raspberry and currant flavors mixed with notes of vanilla and coffee. The finish is long and lingering with soft, sweet tannins.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points (Jun 2016)
Peppery beef jerky and smoky black tea waft up the nostrils, as if to set the stage for the distinctively exotic flavors of fig, plum jam, and five-spice powder. There is an a appealing wildness to this wine, which finishes with an emphasis on its dark herbaceous qualities.
 Wine Spectator 88 points (Oct 26 2015)
Concentrated flavors of roasted plum and dark cherry are matched to hints of juniper berry. Features smoky notes midpalate, with a finish that lingers with baker’s chocolate. Drink now through 2018. 700,000 cases imported. From Argentina.-K.M.

Wine maker notes
2014. A classically Argentine wine, our Alamos Malbec blends the deeply concentrated plum flavors of the country's signature variety Malbec with small portions of Syrah and Bonarda to add dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Well-integrated hints of brown spice and vanilla contribute layers of complexity. A full structure, firm tannins and a long finish create an expansive palate that is hard to forget.

Blend: 90% Malbec, 6% Syrah, 4% Bonarda
