Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and rich, our Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon expresses dark berry characteristics that are complemented nicely by slight herbal notes. Oak aging lent complex layers of brown spice and vanilla with firm tannins to this wine.

Rather unassuming, with just a slight plum bouquet and touches of licorice and blackberry in the mouth. The flavor is pleasant, certainly not overbearing, but there are undesirable tinges of tannin and bitterness that may mellow with age. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=903)

Nice chocolate and vanilla taste that lingers in your mouth. Excellent quality-price ratio.

Lots of heat on the nose here. Palate is juicy and fresh, with black olive, leather, drying tannins, loads of acidity, dark ripe blackberry fruit, and a hint of medicine on the finish.

Mild young wood notes in the aroma, the attack is balanced with good leading tannins, very smooth midpalate with nutty flavors, and a hot chalky finish.

    Very light bouquet on the nose. Light body texture with toffee flavors that open up nicely in your tongue.

    Alamos Cabernet shows a deep ruby reddish, purple color. The wine offers an intense and concentrated nose of red berry fruit mixed with touches cedar, mint and sweet spice. The palate is full of ripe, concentrated red currant and cassis fruit flavors

    The 2012 Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure, unoaked Cabernet Sauvignon from the Uco Valley trying to keep the purity of the fruit. Bright cherry-colored, it is quite supple, ripe and polished as it was a warm vintage. It has soft tannins that make it highly drinkable, if a little international in style, but it is very well done. Drink 2014–2015.

    Berry and plum aromas are ripe and woody, with a note of sawdust appearing on the nose. This has zest and zing on the palate, along with creamy weight, while flavors of toast, wood resin and baked blackberries finish smoky and plump.

    The 2011 Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in the same manner as the Chardonnay. It has an attractive bouquet of red currant, blackberry and cassis that is well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins on the entry. This is a more reserved take on Cabernet with an Old World sensibility, but it has superb earthiness and an almost Bordeaux-like classicism on the finish. This is excellent. Drink nowndash;2017.

    Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of red fruit flavors, sweet spice and a touch of fresh mint. Garnet jewel toned, this Cabernet Sauvignon is full and soft with layers of red currant and cassis, notes of cigar box, leather and ripe black fruits. The wine finishes with finely grained tannins that add structure and length.

The mouthfeel is full yet soft with red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cigar box leather and ripe black fruits.

    <p>An expressive wine with aromas of black fruit and flavors of berries, herbs, spices, and earthy undertones that are surprising for Cab Sauv. Chewy tannins and acidity combine to make for a lingering, fresh finish. Best served with characteristic red wine dishes, such as pizza, pasta, and red meat.</p>
