Red Blend 2012

The 2012 Alamos Red Blend is composed of 38% Malbec, 16% Syrah, 12% Bonarda, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Tempranillo and 6% Petit Verdot, from different vineyards in the Uco Valley. To achieve an alcohol level of 13.7% in a vintage like 2012 they do quite a bit of early harvest and search for Cabernet from cold locations like La Consulta. The result is quite aromatic, open, exuberant, and flowery, with a supple palate. It is tasty and with good acidity. Highly drinkable and very good value. Drink 2014-2017.

International Wine Cellar 3.1.14 SCORE 89

Red Blend 2012

Saturated bright medium ruby. Medicinal blueberry and licorice aromas complicated by violet and chocolate nuances on the pure, scented nose. Plush and sweet on entry, then suave and pliant in the middle, with nicely integrated acidity framing the wine's sweet dark berry flavors. Lush tannins coat the tongue and teeth. Quite suave for the price range.

Red Blend 2010

BEST BUY. "YEAR'S BEST ARGENTINE MALBEC "The depth of flavor in this wine offers sweet fruit that's rich rather than excessive in its ripeness, the texture seductive. It's a voluptuous red for lamb chops."
