Winemaker's Notes

From the vineyard to the winery, Alamos Ridge Malbec is made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catenas high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang-time, preserving the fruits full spectrum of aromas and flavors. At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed (only free-run juice is used) and fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled. A blend of French and American oak barrels, 35% of which are new, are used to age the wine.The result of this car...

    Very deep fruit flavor, little acidic. Plum? Good finish.
