An authentic Argentine wine that thrives in Mendoza’s high altitudes, our Alamos Argentinian Malbec wine blends the deeply concentrated plum flavors of the country’s signature variety–Malbec–with small portions of Syrah and Bonarda to add dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Well-integrated hints of brown spice and vanilla contribute layers of complexity. A full structure, firm tannins and a long finish create an expansive palate that is hard to forget. With crisp, clean air and intense sunlight, growing conditions in Mendoza are truly ideal for Argentinian Malbec.
The 2014 vintage in Mendoza was filled with cold, wet days that led to wines with heightened acidity, lower sugar levels and concentrated aromatics. Although yields were lowered by the cooler weather, the excellent acidity and tannins of the wines of 2014 from Mendoza grapes produced enhanced vibrant color and flavor concentration.
