Winemaker's Notes

The Alamos 2010 Seleccion Malbec has a nose full of ripe black fruit and violet aromas with touches of black pepper and brown spice that are delivered by the oak on the palate. The mouthfeel is full yet supple, with ripe blackberry, black cherry and plum flavors. This wine has a full body with a deep, plush finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and vinous, with ripe blackberry reduction, raspberry and dark plum notes backed by game and underbrush hints. Fine tannins and dark minerality emerges on the broad finish."
