Tasting notes
Alamos Seleccion Malbec has a dark, violet color with deep black tones. The grapes are sourced from four different vineyard sites in the Uco Valley. This results in a complex blend of ripe plum, black currant and cassis with subtle chocolate hints. On the palate, it has a soft generous texture with concentrated fresh fruit and subtle cocoa flavors. Finishes long and lingering with fresh, balanced acidity.

The 2012 Alamos Seleccion Malbec is sourced from San Carlos in the Uco Valley, a cooler quarter where the alcohol is restrained to 13.5% and the freshness is high. It reminds me a bit of the High Note Malbec, a joint venture between the Catena family and American importer Winebow, where they use high altitude vineyards to keep the freshness. This is very dark, with ripe dark fruit, abundant spicy notes, cinnamon and vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied, with a touch of elegant rusticity, with plenty of fine-grained tannins. It develops a violet note with time in glass. Drink 2014-2018.
