  • The venerable Bodega Catena Zapata has played a crucial role in raising the profile of Argentine Malbec internationally. They produce several exceptional wines which are consistently highly lauded by wine critics. Leaving the points aside, perhaps an even more remarkable fact about Catena is that its moderately-priced wines also receive plenty of praise. The Alamos Malbec, is consistently rated as amongst the best value Argentine reds.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    A classically Argentine wine, Alamos Malbec blends the country’s signature variety – Malbec – and its hypnotic aromas of violets and deep, full flavors of plum with small portions of Syrah and Bonarda to add dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Deft oak usage adds layers of complexity with smoothly-integrated tones of spice and vanilla. The full, firm structure and balanced tannins create a rich mouthfeel and expansive finish, and an entirely unforgettable wine.

    TASTING NOTES

    The Alamos Malbec has a dark purple color with violet highlights. The nose offers bright black berry aromas with light floral notes and a touch of toast. The mouth-feel is full and rich, with ripe, concentrated cassis and black raspberry fruit interwoven with a touch of chocolate and sweet spice from light oak aging. The finish shows ripe, silky tannins.

  • REVIEWS

    'Lavender, licorice, a touch of dark plums and spices. Fresh and very focused with juicy tannins, generous blue fruit and a plummy yet taut finish. Fresher, early-drinking style of Malbec.'
