Alamos Malbec Wines Imported South American 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Alamos Seleccion Malbec is from the San Carlos region in the Uco Valley, undergoing malolactic fermentation in oak barrels and raised for 12 months in French and American oak. It has a very elegant bouquet with maraschino cherries, blueberry, cassis and violets akin to a fragrant Syrah. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins, layers of mineral-rich dark berry fruit and a very poised, composed finish that delivers waves of blackberry and balsamic-tinged cherries. This is a very impressive Malbec with “chutzpah.”...91" WA 10/12

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

fruity, wet and juicy red wine, with just a bit of nice pepper.

Great aroma of dark fruits (although a bit unclear until it opens a bit), a medium body and a pleasant finish, although quite heavy on the teeth and gums because of its alcoholic content.

Saturated and extracted, with an incredibly deep purple tint paving the way for manly aromas of espresso, campfire and toasted coconut. The palate, meanwhile, runs a bit sweet, with boysenberry and plum. Soft on the back end, but with enough spine to see it through. For fans of bold reds.

This wine bears a strikingly close resemblance to its higher priced cousin, Catena Malbec. It boasts a decadent nose of ripe blackberry and blueberry while subtle hints of herb and spice complete the lush, long finish. This wine's a meal in itself, but it will also mate nicely with broiled or grilled meats.

Plenty of char greets you, which is typical of a Catena wine; oak is always in play. The palate is ultraripe, with cherry and boysenberry fruit receiving a boost from bold acidity. With nuances of earth and pepper, but ultimately a lean body, this wine steers the course while never overreaching its limits.

Here's a full-bodied red wine at a lean price, offering a mix of cherry, plum, leather and cassis flavors and picking up notes of coffee and spice that add richness to the finish. Drink now.

A wine with a dark violet color with shades of black and purple. The nose offers concentrated plum and black cherry fruit aromas. The wine has a soft, elegant mouthfeel, with rich, concentrated fruit flavors and ripe, soft-sweet tannins. Ready to drink now and over the next 2-5 years.

Ripe, lip-smacking acidity helps keep the plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit bouncing along, with tasty mocha and spice notes as well. Subtle toast, so the fruit really shines. A delicious forward style with textbook flavors. Drink now through 2005.

With a structure reminiscent of a Bordeaux, this wine delivers plenty of smoky cherry fruit and chocolate notes that would accompany a barbecue perfectly.
