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

Dark violet wine, with médium body and great tannins. It has a strange but intriguing smell of candies and medicins.

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)

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.

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

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.

This jammy red delivers cherry compote and dark blueberry pie notes that give way to a cedary finish. Drink now.

A frequent favorite, with classic black currant, plum and violets. Easy to drink and incredibly likable, with soft tannins and a smooth finish. Good with pork chops on the grill or steak and mushrooms.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Alamos Malbec presents a dark purple color with violet highlights. The nose offers bright black cherry aromas with light floral notes and a touch of toast. The mouthfeel is full and rich, with ripe, concentrated cassis and black raspberry fruit flavors interwoven with a touch of chocolate and sweet spice from light oak aging. The finish is long and lingering, with ripe, velvety tannins." -Winery
