    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Alamos Malbec has a dark, blackish purple color. The nose shows ripe black fruits, black pepper spice and floral notes. The mouthfeel is full yet soft and supple, with black raspberry and currant flavors mingled with notes of sweet spice and a touch of leather. The finish is long and persistent with soft, sweet tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Malbec added just the right touch of richness, spice and complexity to give the dinner another dimension. I rated it 90 points, non-blind...

    Wine Spectator

    This wine's flavors of violets and ripe cherries are refreshed and strengthened by an intense mineral acidity. The flavors last with juicy richness, ending on sweet notes of spice. For a duck stew.

    It has an airy blend of chicken coop and pig's ass...just a hint of leather..and it numbed my tongue after one mouthful. It's a keeper! And I need a designated driver. Anyone got a breath mint?

    Great nose: grapefruit, chocolate, leaves, chicken coop. Taste: still too sharp/tart, chocolate, plum, and pepper. Great tanins: my tongue is numb from one taste. This one is a keeper

    I don't have a sophisticated palette but this is a decent wine with mild acidity. Worth it for 12 dollars
