Catena Alamos Malbec - Mendoza, ARG

 
Catena Alamos Malbec - Mendoza, ARG

Masses of dried, raisiny fruit character, lots of blackberries, plums and a full-bodies palate with ripe sweet tannin. A hint of brown spice and vanillin oak bring up the background in this delicious example which has been a pace-setter for Argentine Malbecs for a number of years now. 

Alamos Red Blend notes that it is among “The Wines of Catena.” This is significant, because the Catena family is considered the “first family” of vintners in Argentina. The vineyards of Mendoza, where this wine comes from, are among the highest elevations in the world planted with vines, as they stretch up the foothills of the Andes Mountains and enjoy the temperate climate that comes along with this location.

There are many levels of vineyards in the vast Mendoza region, which happens to be the world’s largest wine region. This wine comes from some of the highest planted vineyards, above 3,000 feet, giving the wine a dry, exotic touch, whereas malbec from the valley floor can be more fruity and less complex.
