Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.8%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Malbec is the signature wine of the Mendoza region and represents the highest achievements of Argentine winemaking. The Alamos Malbec has dark, blackish purple color. The nose shows ripe black fruits, black pepper spice and floral notes. The mouthfeel is full yet soft and supple, with black raspberry and currant flavors mingled with notes of sweet spice and a touch of leather. The finish is long and persistent with soft, sweet tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Rubbery at first, then it rounds out and settles down to offer blackberry and richness and jammy aromas. The palate is soft, lush and cushioned, while blackberry flavors run sweet, toasty, and chocolaty. Remains sweet on the finish, with fig and minty spice flavors."

Style: Smooth & Supple
this is an outstanding value for my table wine which I keep by the case for everyday use. Smooth, supple, with a strong bouquet when first opened, I prefer to let it breathe for 30 minutes before drinking. A great value for a decent wine!

Style: Smooth & Supple
Great table wine for a great price. I got this bottle for $7.95. It needs about 30minutes to breath. Smooth round tannins. Soft palate with lingering smooth tannins. After drinking this malbec it makes me want to try this aged in Oak Barrels.

Learn 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.

Learn About Argentina

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector. A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner.
