Winemaker Notes Malbec is the 'signature wine' of the Mendoza region and represents the highest achievements of Argentine winemaking. 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.
Malbec pairs well with lean red meats, blue cheeses, mushrooms and roasted vegetables.
