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.
Wine Advocate 89 points - 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. (Apr 2014)
