Winemaker Notes

From the vineyard to the winery, Alamos Ridge Malbec is made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catenas high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang-time, preserving the fruits full spectrum of aromas and flavors. At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed (only free-run juice is used) and fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled. A blend of French and American oak barrels, 35% of which are new, are used to age the wine.

The result of this careful handling is a wine of dark color with violet hues, and a concentrated nose of plum and black cherry fruit. The wine has a soft mouthfeel, with dried fruit flavors, ripe, sweet tannins and a light touch of toast. Ready to drink now and over the next 2-5 years. -José Galante, Chief Winemaker

"Ripe, lip-smacking acidity helps keep the plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit bouncing along here, with tasty mocha and spice notes as well. Subtle toast, so the fruit really shines. A delicious, forward style with textbook flavors. Drink now through 2005. 54,285 cases made. Best Values. From Argentina."

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.

Prosecco

View all wine

One of the world’s most popular and playful sparkling wines, Prosecco is a specialty of northeastern Italy, spanning nine provinces of the Veneto and Fruili-Venezia Giulia regions. A higher-quality version that must meet more stringent production requirements is known as Prosecco Superiore and must come from the town of either Valdobiaddene or Conegliano. Prosecco can be produced as a still wine, a semi-sparkling wine (“frizzante”), or a fully sparkling wine (“spumante”)—the latter being the most common. While it is typically produced in a “brut” (dry) style, its fresh and fruity character preserved by the tank method of carbonation often makes it seem a bit sweeter than it is in reality. “Extra brut” styles incorporating higher levels of residual sugar are quite popular, however.

Made from the Glera grape, which was formerly and confusingly called Prosecco, these wines are notable for pleasant flavors of peach, pear, melon, green apple, and honeysuckle. Lower pressure during the carbonation process means that the bubbles are lighter and frothier than in Champagne or other traditional method sparkling wine, and less persistent. Prosecco is also a great choice to blend with orange juice for mimosas for a classic brunch beverage.
