Alamos Malbec 2013
"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
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
Smoy and lightly caramelly on the nose with lots of darkly jammy blackberry fruit and hints of both dates and pomegranate with a dusting of white pepper as a top note. Smooth as wool on entry, a little fuzzy but ultimately plush and friendly with a big core of dark, almost coffee accented blackberry fruit which shows hints of fresh bay leaf and a little citrus peel nuance. S little chewy in the mouth, and a little sticky on the finish, this highlights the bold fruit that made malbec such a household name, layers of blackberry, black currant, and black cherry fruit all gently spiced with oak and supported by enough acid to become obvious on the finish and help keep everything fresh. This is a bit of a big, chunky wine and while it may be inelegant it will be very popular. 87pts
Two and a half glasses
Dark violet wine, with médium body and great tannins. It has a strange but intriguing smell of candies and medicins.
Gave it away at Shore's early 2013 holiday party. Phenomenal waste of good wine.
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)

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