Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This shows plenty of dark fruits with graphite and espresso undertones. The palate is full and round with supple caressing tannins and a savory fruity yet reserved finish. Awesome value. Drink now.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

The 2011 Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in the same manner as the Chardonnay. It has an attractive bouquet of red currant, blackberry and cassis that is well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins on the entry. This is a more reserved take on Cabernet with an Old World sensibility, but it has superb earthiness and an almost Bordeaux-like classicism on the finish. This is excellent. Drink now-2017.
