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.
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.
