Alamos Malbec 2011
Editorial Reviews for Alamos Malbec
Cocoa, spice and leather greet the nose along with rather intense wild berry and chocolate covered pomegranate seed notes. This shows a hint of sweetness on entry and delivers a nice blend of vivid plum and sweet raspberry flavors wrapped in well judged milk chocolaty oak. Very easy drinking with well balanced structural elements, this is round and friendly with nice nuanced blackberry and herb notes adding a touch of detail on the backend and through the modest, fruity, and slightly tacky finish which reveals some tart apple flavors. 86pts
Four and a half glasses
I admit the nose of this wine is one of the best I've had yet but horribly shocked by the sheer strength of the body. Unreasonably strong tannins coat the tongue and sustain the taste way too long in my opinion. The mix of grapefruit and what seems to be orange on the end of the tongue does not mix well. This is not a wine I will be purchasing again.
A solid, straightforward malbec in every aspect, with classic inky nose and red fruit flavor, albeit a little tannic even for a young wine, and also bitter at the finish. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=590)
My Rating 86 : This 2011 wine has a consistent quality standard. Nothing great but a reliable everyday wine with a somehow complex nice nose and a dry fruity body. What's wrong with the people at Snooth. I put in a 2011 wine and they show everything back to 2006. Have they lost it?
Alamos Malbec 2011 Mendoza Argentina $20.00 Aust Colour: Dark plumb with purple outer rim Nose: Dusty plumb, dark cherry aromas interwoven with light spice and soil very European and interesting. Palate: Malbec should be plumy that is the nature of this grape. this wine shows every bit of that along with a wonderfully big Dusty finish showing ripe silky tannins on a firm finish Conclusion: A quality red and this is not just cheep plonk But it is not for everyone
Full bodied with rich jammy red fruit flavors and hints of leather. I liked the tannins. This is a tasty pairing with our Panacea Red Habano Robusto. See The Virginia Wine and Cigar Trail for more.
External Reviews for Alamos Malbec
The 2011 Alamos Malbec, raised the same way as the Cabernet Sauvignon, has a simple bouquet of dark cherries, blueberry and crushed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, fine tannins. There is a seductive sense of harmony here with a light but insistent grip and a minerally aftertaste. This Malbec is very well-crafted. Drink now–2017.
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 with black raspberry and currant flavors mixed with notes of vanilla and coffee.
The Alamos Malbec has dark, blackish purple color. The nose shows ripe black fruits, black pepper spice and floral notes. The mouthfeel is full yet soft and supple, with black raspberry and currant flavors mingled with notes of sweet spice and a touch of leather. The finish is long and persistent with soft, sweet tannins.
Dichtes Purpurrot, zum Rand hin leicht aufhellend. Saftige, schwarze Kirschen und Heidelbeeren vermählen sich mit einigen mineralischen Noten, auch Brownies. Auftakt von guter Fruchtsüsse, abgelöst von einer rassigen, kraftvollen Malbec-Aromatik, schwarzer Holunder und etwas Zedernholz, eine leicht rauchige Note auch; gute Abgangsfrische.
A racy, medium-bodied red, offering floral raspberry and crushed blackberry notes that give way to assertive tannins on the finish. Drink now.
Selección is proving itself to be a consistent modern Malbec (the last four vintages have rated 89 or 90 points). This rendition shows graphite, inky berry notes and savory spice aromas such as cumin and cardamom. It’s rich and full bodied, with tobacco, coconut and baked plum and berry flavors. A smooth finish is neither tannic nor overpowering.
Leads off with crushed black cherry and dark raspberry fruit, with cinnamon, licorice and hot stone accents following through on the detailed, fresh finish. Drink now.
