Malbec 2015

An attractive red with notes of dried berry and light chocolate. Spicy too. Full body, juicy and rich with a long and flavorful finish. I like the balsamic undertone to this. This is a real malbec. Drink now.

Malbec 2013

The 2013 Alamos Malbec mixes fruit from different zones of Mendoza, but it's mostly from the Uco Valley. Part of the wine fermented in cement vats and the rest in stainless steel with some 20% of the volume in contact with inner staves during fermentation. The nose mixes spices, violets, cherries and some orange peel in a very clean way with harmony and subtlety. The palate is medium-bodied with superb balance, freshness and acidity giving length to the wine. Textbook Malbec at great prices and readily available, as they produce a whopping 10 million bottles of it! This has to be one of the largest production quality wines in the world.

Malbec 2012

The 2012 Alamos Malbec is more what you?d expect, a textbook Malbec at a very affordable price. The fruit is sourced within the Uco Valley, and the wine shows quite dark-colored, a little closed and backward compared with the Cabernet, with shy, subtle notes of black fruit, violets, spices and an herbaceous touch. The palate is medium-bodied and well-balanced, with abundant fine-grained tannins. Perfect to go with food. Drink 2014-2018.

Malbec 2011

The 2011 Alamos Malbec, raised the same way as the Cabernet Sauvignon, has a simple bouquet of dark cherries, blueberry and crushed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, fine tannins. There is a seductive sense of harmony here with a light but insistent grip and a minerally aftertaste. This Malbec is very well-crafted. Drink now-2017.
