The picture states that this is a 2008 Alamos Malbec, is it so? The title doesn't state the year, nor does the description. I would appreciate an answer. Such answer, would play a great role in whether I decide to make a purchase. Thank you very much.
I bought this wine not having had it before, and only based on the one review above, but this was delicious and at an affordable price to boot! I will be getting more of this.
This is one of my favorites, full bodied great with lamb and aparagus a highly recommended wine.
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.
