Alamos Malbec 2009
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.
Quite toasty, showing lots of dark prune, plum and currant fruit flavors liberally laced with bacon and cocoa notes. The toasty edge holds sway on the finish. Drink now. 250,000 cases imported.
