Bodegas Alamos 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Uco Valley) Mendoza - Argentina
Availability: BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: October 29th, 2014
Tasting Notes: An over-achieving Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza produced under the direction of the Catena Family of wineries that delivers excellent value for money and good varietal typicity. Ripe, robust, dark fruit carries the appealing, sweet nose with smoky oak, vanilla and menthol notes adding depth.
The palate is full of flavour, though, less-so in body, weighing in more as a middleweight-+ with plenty of cassis, blackberry and blueberry fruit flavours supported by ripe, dusty tannins and a layer of background spice. Perfect for BBQs and steaks. Drink now-2017.
