Review: 2011 Alamos Malbec ‘Seleccion’, Mendoza, Argentina

alamos-seleccion-malbecby Andrew Chalk

A perfect example of why Malbec is so popular with wine drinkers. A fruity aromatic nose, followed by fruit forward flavors of raspberries with hints of lead pencil and cedar. Soft, lush tannin. Long, consistent finish. The more fastidious taster will notice the nose also has black pepper and thyme and the abundant fruit in the mouth does not spoil the wine with over sweetness. Crave Recommended.

MSRP: $20 ($15-$16 at Total Wine & Goody Goody)
