Alamos Malbec shows the unique potential of this most Argentine of grapes. With a deep, dark violet color, the wine has a concentrated nose of black stone fruits with a touch of toast from light oak aging. The palate is full and round with black raspberry and currant flavors mixed with notes of vanilla and coffee. The finish is long and lingering with soft, sweet tannins.
