Wine Description

Alamos Malbec shows the unique potential of this most Argentine of grapes. With a deep, dark violet color, the wine has a concentrated nose of black stone fruits with a touch of toast from light oak aging. The palate is full and round with black raspberry and currant flavors mixed with notes of vanilla and coffee. The finish is long and lingering with soft, sweet tannins.

    A respectable $9 wine that's priced that way because it's hits the "No Respect" wine snob trifecta of: Argentinian + Malbec + Tempranillo . I'll be back for more.

    Sweet and savory to the tip of the tongue, bitter with a furious bite at the end, kind of like a canine ripping a price of meat from the bone!

    Dark beautiful color. Licorice, coffee, leather, cherry notes. Rather bitter, alcohol is a bit overpowering. Pleasant cheap wine overall.

    Smooth, but just a little bit of a metallic finish. Young tasting. Not bad for the price, but wouldn't go out of my way for more.

    Heavy berries, cherry, hint of chocolate. Moderate bitterness / tannins. Taste that on initial sip, heavy taste of fruits follow.

    (2005 Vintage) Shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.
