Alamos Red Blend 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Toasty and bright on the nose with wild, lightly jammy huckleberry and boysenberry aromas slathered over sweet, toasty oak. This is plump and rich with sweet wild berry fruit flavors supported by woody tannins that are a touch splintery. There’s plenty of toasty vanilla spice here, all helped out by the bright acidity. A bit simple but plum and fun with a plummy finish. A touch raw on the palate. 86pts

Lots of tannins in this wine. Decant for thirty to forty-five minutes. Otherwise nice blend of spices with a relatively smooth finish. Not bad in a pinch

Consider a nice, gently grilled pork loin that has been marinated in garlic and herbs and is served with a light salsa of piquillo peppers. The simple fruitiness of the wine will work well with the gentle zing of the sauce and the fresh, pure flavors that this sort of dish produces.
