Winemaker Felipe Stahlschmidt observed flavors of dark cherry and blackberry fruit in this 2009 Alamos Malbec, with integrated spice and vanilla oak characteristics. The wine has a full structure and a long, lingering finish which makes it enjoyable now, or for years to come. "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. " 89 Points-Wine Enthusiast
a little smoother and deeper than the regular malbec...don't taste as much bite.
great weight to start with, but became too light quickly
