    Winemaker's Notes:

    Winemaker Felipe Stahlschmidt observed flavors of dark cherry and blackberry fruit in this 2009 Alamos Malbec, with integrated spice and vanilla oak characteristics. The wine has a full structure and a long, lingering finish which makes it enjoyable now, or for years to come.

    Critical Acclaim:

    For a big brand, Alamos knows how to deliver quality at a fair price. This vintage is exemplary for its sweet black plum and graham cracker bouquet, and lush, deep palate. The fruit is tasty, balanced , dark in nature and just a little bit spicy. For a basic-priced Malbec it more than gets the job done.

    Feng (12/20/2010)
    Deep purple color; pleasant nose; Fruity taste, supple body, modest and balanced tannins. Really easy to drink yet not boring. A knock out value for the price, quite likely the best sub $10 bottle of red I have encountered. Rushed back trying to buy more, but it SOLD OUt! Darn. 90 for sure. (I thought my rating was for the 2008 vintage, which was sold out. So I am ordering more of the 2009 and will update my review). Had the 2009 vintage and think the review is fair.

    For a $10 wine, I must say this is very impressive. The first sip begged for more depth, but in retrospection, this is a fine Malbec for its class/category. Pretty smooth and balanced. Interesting how they make this work for a value-level wine.

    This is a stout wine that carries a full body of flavor with it. Not for the faint of heart. This was my first Malbec and I must admit I liked it. Could have had a little more depth. Very good though with red meats.

    Very easy to find and drink. Usually in the 3 for $25 bin at stores. Just OK. For a couple bucks more there are far better options

    Blackberry flavor jumps out but is overwhelmed by a spice I can't quite put my finger on. The Medium-long finish would be more enjoyable if the spice took a back seat to the bold, supple fruit flavors that I expect in an Argentinian Malbec. I gave it 3 stars because its a good wine for the price, but its no 89.
