Alamos Malbec 2017
What do all of these characteristics mean for the wine itself? It means that this malbec is a rich wine with flavors as intense as the Andes Mountains. Alamos Malbec has a plum flavor that runs deep with small portions of syrah and bonarda that bring a blackberry and dark cherry layer of complexity — unexpected for wines from the region. To take the flavor palate a step further, hints of vanilla and brown spice also make an appearance for full structure. Firm tannins lead into the long finish that will make this wine unforgettable for anyone who is fortunate enough to enjoy it.
Nestled in the Andes Mountains of Western Argentina, Alamos Malbec comes from the province of Mendoza, highly regarded as the best winegrowing region in the country. Mendoza wines have a ton of character that is forged in those high-altitude desert vineyards that range anywhere from 1,000 to 5,000 feet in elevation. The intense climate changes of the region provide cool temps, but also clear air. Clear air means good sunlight and flavorful grapes.
