Wine Review: The 2014 Alamos "Red Wine" is a pleasing red blend that is brick red in color and medium to full bodied. Dark fruit are prevalent throughout the bouquet including blackberry and black plum. Oak, light black pepper and hints of vanilla complete the bouquet. The smooth and pleasant palate includes ripe black cherry, spice, minerality, light oak and tannins. This Argentinian red wine is an easy going and well-rounded wine that includes a nice oaky dry finish. I would pair this Mendoza based wine with a juicy bacon mushroom burger. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Our Alamos Red Blend has spicy flavors of black pepper and blackberry fruit from the Syrah, and juicy dark cherry flavors from the Bonarda. Both of these varieties marry well with the dark plum flavors of Malbec. Tempranillo adds an intriguing edge with its lively strawberry nuances that mingle perfectly with hints of oak. A warm brown spice character from the oak and a rich mouthfeel deliver a bold and very approachable wine.
