Winery notes: The 2008 Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon presents a dark purple color with garnet tones. The nose is explosive with red fruit flavors sweet spice and a touch of fresh mint. The mouthfeel is full yet soft with red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cigar box leather and ripe black fruits. The finish is focused with finely grained tannins adding structure and length.

Pure black color with barely discernable red around edges. Serious color is accompanied by brooding and dark nose highlighted by notes of pure bramble, fresh crushed blackberries. As it sits in the glass it evolves to savory notes of meat and mineral. In the mouth it is all encompassing, covering every inch with sheer power and depth. An almost oil-like viscosity carries the monstrous weight with elegance. The petit verdot tannins feign an attack on the whole mouth, but instead deliver firm and pleasurable grip. A wine to be put down and revisited with age and serious steak.
