Buy Alamos Malbec
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.
Wine Spectator 88 points - Peppery beef jerky and smoky black tea waft up the nostrils, as if to set the stage for the distinctively exotic flavors of fig, plum jam, and five-spice powder. There is an a appealing wildness to this wine, which finishes with an emphasis on its dark herbaceous qualities.

Producer
Over the past 20 years, Nicolás and Laura Catena and their vineyard management team have worked tirelessly in the discovery, identification and development of key microclimates in the high altitude wine country of Mendoza, Argentina. Nicolás Catena has planted an almost countless number of varietals and clones throughout his mountain vineyard sites. This quest for quality lead Nicolás and Laura Catena to a crucial discovery regarding the influence of altitude on grape cultivation in Mendoza. Observing the important differences in soil types, average temperatures and thermal amplitudes that exist at varying altitudes, he found that vineyard sites which are just a few kilometers apart can have vast differences in altitude and possess remarkably different microclimates. Over the years, the in depth study of these different microclimates led Nicolás to determine that the same varietal, and even the same clone, presented distinct aromatic and flavor profiles when cultivated in each of these unique microclimates. Implementing the age old art of assemblage, he found that by blending these different lots of the same varietal, he could achieve a more complex wine.
