"A very fresh and spicy nose with plenty of brambleberries, violets, baking spices, vanilla and cloves. Full body, tight yet velvety tannins, no shortage of plummy fruit and a fresh yet long finish. Drink now."

"The 2016 Alamos Selección Malbec shows some more concentration and a deeper color than its siblings. It’s pure Malbec from different vineyards in the Valle de Uco, a zone that saw a cool and wet season in which the vines behaved quite well. The palate reveals some grainy tannins that would welcome some food. 480,000 bottles produced."
"This bold Malbec Selección wine marries dense, dark fruit flavors with subtle minerality and muscular structure. It’s an adventurous and unique mountain red, with plenty of depth and nuance created by Mendoza’s truly distinctive growing conditions. This full-bodied Malbec wine begins with complex aromas of juicy dark fruits and hints of floral violet and wildflowers. On the supple palate, abundant fruit flavors of ripe black currant and plum are framed by hints of black pepper and baking spices, leading to a lingering, luscious finish." ~Winemaker Notes
