Alamos Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2017 (750ml)
A classically Argentine wine, Alamos Malbec blends the country’s signature variety – Malbec – and its hypnotic aromas of violets and deep, full flavors of plum with small portions of Syrah and Bonarda to add dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Deft oak usage adds layers of complexity with smoothly-integrated tones of spice and vanilla. The full, firm structure and balanced tannins create a rich mouthfeel and expansive finish, and an entirely unforgettable wine.
91 Points - James Suckling
Lavender, licorice, a touch of dark plums and spices. Fresh and very focused with juicy tannins, generous blue fruit and a plummy yet taut finish. Fresher, early-drinking style of Malbec.
