Alamos is a good quality for the price Malbec, I hope wineries start importing the really good Argentinian Malbec, as Ricardo Santos or Rutini, these are the best.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The Catena family has conducted extensive research into the soils and microclimates of Mendoza's high altitude wine country in the foothills of the Andes mountains. At different altitudes, the family's Malbec vineyards express a unique profile of aromas and flavors: the ripe plum fruit flavors and silky texture of the Angelica vineyard (2,850' elevation); the dark fruit character and pepper notes of the La Piramide vineyard (3,100' elevation); the black cherry aromas and excellent structure of the Altamira vineyard (3,870' elevation); the explosive floral aromatics full, concentrated mouthfeel of the Adrianna vineyard (5,000'). The blend of these components creates a wine of unique character that has balance, concentration and a strong varietal identity." -Winery
