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

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.

For a big brand, Alamos knows how to deliver quality at a fair price. This vintage is exemplary for its sweet black plum and graham cracker bouquet and lush, deep palate. The fruit is tasty, balanced, dark in nature and just a little bit spicy. For a basic-priced Malbec it more than gets the job done.

Bright, dark ruby-red. Subdued but very ripe aromas of blackberry, cassis and licorice, with complicating suggestions of chocolate, herbs, shoe polish and leather. Rather suave on entry, then ripe and smooth in the middle, with a subtler sweetness that the chunkier 2008 Alamos cabernet. The very fine, broad tannins dust the palate and teeth. This refreshing malbec is very easy to drink.

The purple-colored 2008 Malbec Blend contains 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Bonarda. The wine was aged in French and American oak. It offers up a nose of cedar, black cherry, and plum leading to a dense wine with plenty of savory black fruit flavor, a forward personality, and good length.

Rich and vinous, with ripe blackberry reduction, raspberry and dark plum notes backed by game and underbrush hints. Fine tannins and dark minerality emerges on the broad finish. Drink now.

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.” Drink 2014–2020.

This is Alamos’s top Malbec, and it is fat and savory on the nose, with rubber, leather, asphalt and cured-meat aromas in addition to showing jammy fruit scents. In the mouth, this is lush and meaty, with blueberry, jerky and campfire flavors. A toasty, stout finish is big and weighty, but overall this fruit bomb is balanced.


External Review

The 2007 Malbec was aged for 9 months in French and American oak, 25% new. It offers layers of black cherry fruit, good weight on the palate, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. It can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years.
