Alamos Malbec Seleccion 2012 750ml

Alamos Malbec Seleccion

The Alamos 2010 Seleccion Malbec has a nose full of ripe black fruit and violet aromas with touches of black pepper and brown spice that are delivered by the oak on the palate. The mouthfeel is full yet supple, with ripe blackberry, black cherry and plum flavors. This wine has a full body with a deep, plush finish.

Alamos Seleccion Malbec has a dark, violet color with deep black tones. The grapes are sourced from four different vineyard sites in the Uco Valley. This results in a complex blend of ripe plum, black currant and cassis with subtle chocolate hints. On the palate, it has a soft generous texture with concentrated fresh fruit and subtle cocoa flavors. Finishes long and lingering with fresh, balanced acidity.

These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.
