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.

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
