Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of red berry fruit mixed with touches of eucalyptus and sweet spice lead into flavors of red currant and plum along with notes of cedar and tobacco. A bit peppery on the finish.

About Alamos:

From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catena's high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang time, preserving the fruit's full spectrum of aromas and flavors.

At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed, fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and two to four year old barrels are used to age the wines.
