Wine Review: This dark red colored Malbec from Alamos is a good value. It opens cranberry and strawberry rhubarb bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black raspberry with notes cedar plank and black pepper. I also detected hints of strawberry rhubarb. The finish is dry and subtly fades away. This is a good burger wine. I would pair it with a juicy sautéed mushroom and bacon burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A classically Argentine wine, our Alamos Malbec blends the deeply concentrated plum flavors of the country's signature variety – Malbec – with small portions of Syrah and Bonarda to add dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Well-integrated hints of brown spice and vanilla contribute layers of complexity. A full structure, firm tannins and a long finish create an expansive palate that is hard to forget.
