Winemaker Notes

This inaugural vintage of the Alamos Red Blend offers a unique combination of Argentine traditions with its Malbec base and layers of Bonarda. Dark berry fruit flavors are framed by brown spice and vanilla oak characters. Tempranillo grapes give this wine a unique earthy character while Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon add structure.

Blend: 40% Malbec, 18% Tempranillo, 14% Bonarda, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 7% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

The depth of flavor in this wine offers sweet fruit that’s rich rather than excessive in its ripeness, the texture seductive. It’s a voluptuous red for lamb chops.

Alamos
From the vineyard to the winery, the Alamos wines are made to emphasize varietal fruit character. The cool evening temperatures in Catena's high altitude vineyards allow for prolonged hang time, preserving the fruit's full spectrum of aromas and flavors.

At the winery, the grapes are gently destemmed, fermentation temperatures are carefully controlled and two to four year old barrels are used to age the wines.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
