Alamos Malbec V21 750ML

Our 2021 Malbec is a big, full-bodied wine made from Argentina's most famous red grape. Showing dark purple in the glass, this wine radiates aromas of blackberry and semi-sweet chocolate. The palate brims with layers of blackcurrant and red raspberry underscored with hints of white pepper. The mouthfeel is silky, leading to a long finish with touches of pomegranate and vanilla bean. <br><br> <b>About The Region</b><br> Some of the most renowned winegrowing regions of Argentina are in Mendoza, a province in the western Cuyo region. Tucked under the massive shoulders of the Andes Mountains, the vines thrive in desert conditions quenched by mineral-rich snowmelt. Altitudes from 3,000 to 5,000 feet surround the vines in cool temperatures, crisp mountain air and sunlight that helps produce the bold flavor characteristics found in Mendoza-grown Malbec. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes</b><br> The 2021 harvest in Mendoza began with unseasonal frost in early October. This caused a slight reduction in crop size but was mitigated when warm weather kicked in and the regular diurnal temperature shifts came into play. Overall, the grapes were allowed to fully ripen on the vine, resulting in outstanding quality. <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes</b><br> The grapes for our Malbec were hand harvested, de-stemmed and crushed. The must was cold soaked for 72 hours prior to fermentation, which occurred over seven days in both upright and conical tanks at a maximum temperature of 85°F. For optimal extraction of color and flavor, we used pump-overs and the skins were left in contact with the juice for up to 20 days. This wine was aged on a combination of French and American oak before bottling.

The 2018 Alamos Selección Malbec, the pinnacle of their portfolio, showcases fruit from the Mendoza region. Bouquets of crushed dried violet and rich blackberry unfurl in the glass. On the palate, luscious notes of dark cherry and black plum meld with touches of black pepper and rich, subtle oak. A finely tuned structure and supple mouthfeel add depth and deliver a luscious finish. Tucked under the massive shoulders of the Andes Mountains in west central Argentina, the province of Mendoza is renowned as a winegrowing region. The high-altitude desert vineyards their roll upward into the foothills and toward the steep Andes’ peaks. Altitudes in Mendoza range from 3,000 to 5,000 feet, and that altitude means clear air and more sunlight for building flavors in the grapes. At night, cold air sweeps down from the mountains to give the grapes the structure and complexity to balance perfectly with the intense flavors.

Layers of blackberries, deep plum and blueberries meld together for a rich, saturated flavor in our 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon. Subtle hints of vanilla, clove and cracked peppercorn from oak aging and firm tannins add complexity. Our deep 2018 Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon offers a classic expression of the Argentinian influence on the variety.

Our 2020 Red Blend is a richly layered, dark red wine from Mendoza, one of Argentina’s renowned winegrowing regions. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Bonarda leads the blend, bringing textured notes of dark cherry with a dash of sweet vanilla. Spicy notes of blackberry underscored by hints of toasted oak fill out the palate on the way to a long finish with a touch of dried herb.
