Alamos Malbec 2018
A classically Argentine wine that thrives in Mendoza’s high altitudes, our Alamos Malbec blends the deeply concentrated plum flavors of the country’s signature variety–Malbec–with small portions of Syrah and Bonarda to add dark cherry and blackberry flavors.
Well-integrated hints of brown spice and vanilla contribute layers of complexity. A full structure, firm tannins and a long finish create an expansive palate that is hard to forget. The 2018 Malbec delivers a complex fine red wine that pairs beautifully with a wide range of cuisine and goes beyond the expected.
With crisp, clean air and intense sunlight, growing conditions in Mendoza are truly ideal for Malbec.
AWARD & ACCOLADES
The best-selling Argentinean Malbec in the US showed pretty well in the 2018 vintage, when the 2018 Malbec came through as a textbook varietal example with aromas of violets and wild berries and herbs with just a spicy twist. It has a gentle palate with the telltale round tannins from the grape, nice texture, focused and clean flavors and a dry and serious finish. I think this goes back to the freshness of vintages like 2013. Believe it or not, they produce some nine-million bottles of this wine.
A brambly array of blackberries and red plums, leading to a soft, easy and fine palate that has impressive focus.
