From the vineyard to the winery, Alamos Ridge Malbec is made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catenas high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang-time, preserving the fruits full spectrum of aromas and flavors. At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed (only free-run juice is used) and fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled. A blend of French and American oak barrels, 35% of which are new, are used to age the wine.
The result of this careful handling is a wine of dark color with violet hues, and a concentrated nose of plum and black cherry fruit. The wine has a soft mouthfeel, with dried fruit flavors, ripe, sweet tannins and a light touch of toast. Ready to drink now and over the next 2-5 years. -José Galante, Chief Winemaker
