Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon

Alamos Cabernet shows a deep ruby reddish, purple color. The wine offers an intense and concentrated nose of red berry fruit mixed with touches cedar, mint and sweet spice. The palate is full of ripe, concentrated red currant and cassis fruit flavors with notes of cigar box and spicy black pepper. The finish is long and structured, with finely grained tannins.

Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark purple color with ruby red tones. The nose is full of ripe red fruits, sweet spice and a touch of tobacco. The mouthfeel shows red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cedar and espresso beans. The finish is soft and sweet, with finely grained tannins adding structure and length

Alamos has taken pride in the single vineyard designation of the wines they produce. The grapes for the Alamos wines are sourced from several vineyard sites and then blended together in the final product. For over 20 years, Alamos and his winemaking team have planted countless numbers of varietals and clones throughout their mountainous vineyard sites. Each vineyard site enjoys its own soil variations and microclimates. Alamos and his team have carefully studied the effects of these microclimates on the grapes from each vineyard. They descovered that the same varietal, and even the same clone, presents truly distinct aromatic and flavor characteristics when grown in different microclimates. Implementing the age-old "art of assemblage," Nicolas found that by blending different lots of the same varietal, he could create a more intense and complex wine. As great artists tap their creative spirit to mix and match colors for a final work of art, the team at Bodega Alamos use their creativity in the intricate process of blending grapes in order to craft the final wine.

Slight bouquet with a strong flavor good for spicy foods...other than that rather unremarkable.

Alamos Cabernet is rich and expressive, with flavors of dark berries and spice reminiscent of wines from the Mendoza region of Argentina.

The province of Mendoza is renowned for housing some of the best winegrowing regions of Argentina. Tucked under the massive shoulders of the Andes Mountains in west central Argentina, Mendoza produces 80 percent of the country’s wines. The character of Mendoza wines is forged in high altitude desert vineyards watered by mineral-rich meltwater from glaciers and snowfields. Altitudes range from 1,000 feet to around 4,000 feet, where the foothills rise steeply toward the Andes’ peaks. Grapes for Alamos wines are sourced from Catena’s high altitude estate vineyards, as well as independent growers who have long-standing relationships with the family. High altitude means cool temperatures and clear air, and clear air means more sunlight for vines to use to build flavor in their grapes, helping to make Mendoza the source of Argentina’s well-earned reputation for top quality, unique wines that represent some of the best values on the world market today.
