Deep ruby-purple in colour with a cedary, plum and blackcurrant bouquet lifted with notes of vanilla oak; medium-bodied, dry, beautifully balanced and firmly structured, with a lovely floral note on the end taste.
Argentina is not all Malbec but this Cabernet does have 15% Malbec in the blend. You might think $24.95 expensive for an Argentinian wine - of course you do - but this one is well worth picking up. Dense purple in colour; it has a lovely cedary, tobacco and plum bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, it's dry and fruity, well-structured and firm with ripe black fruit flavours and balancing acidity.
This wine shows what Argentina can do when it comes to producing an icon wine. Dene purple-black in colour with a cedary, savoury plum nose lifted with vanilla oak notes; full-bodied, dry, earthy black plum flavour with balancing acidity and a firm tannic finish. Needs 3 – 4 years to show its paces.
Opening with scents of ripe red berries, red currant and a whiff of eucalyptus, with berry, currant and peppery spice flavours playing through in the mouth, this zesty, intriguing, terroir-driven wine is harmoniously balanced, culminating with a long agreeably tannic finish.
Argentina’s excellent Alamos wines are now distributed by E & J Gallo. Dense purple in colour, it has a cedary, earthy, spicy, plum bouquet with evident vanilla oak notes; it’s medium-bodied, fruity but firm, with ripe plum flavours carried on fresh acidity. It’s a steak wine if ever there was one.
This old-vine Malbec has a wow nose of rich currants, plums, anise with elegant spice notes, minerals and swirling earthy/savoury accents. It still needs a bit of time to integrate all those moving parts in the mouth, but shows depth of fruit, concentration and plenty of spicy/savoury goodness through a finessed finish.
Very deep plum red, young-looking for its age. Fairly intense nose of dates, raisins and black cherries seasoned with vanilla oak. Built to last, it is surprisingly tannic for its age, which lends a pleasant bitterness on the finish, but quite palatable with spiced cherry and blueberry flavours. Will improve for another couple of years.
