Alamos Malbec 2018
The best-selling Argentinean Malbec in the US showed pretty well in the 2018 vintage, when the 2018 Malbec came through as a textbook varietal example with aromas of violets and wild berries and herbs with just a spicy twist. It has a gentle palate with the telltale round tannins from the grape, nice texture, focused and clean flavors and a dry and serious finish. I think this goes back to the freshness of vintages like 2013. Believe it or not, they produce some nine-million bottles of this wine.
