Alamos is the entry level label for Argentinian giant Catena offering the best of Mendoza’s high altitude vineyards at an incredible price. Grown on foothills of the Andes Mountains at elevations of 3,000 to 5,000 feet, the intense sunlight, cool evening temperatures and mineral-rich irrigation from melted mountain snow translates to a rich wine with intense flavour characteristics.

Totally opaque black dark red colour with a bright dark red black tinged hue. Scented liquorice and black cherry aromas are intermixed with hints of blueberry, incense infusions, scorched earth and spice following on. Surprisingly forward and opulent the palate is decked out with succulent black cherry, blueberry and liquorice flavours over incense infusions and spicy dried herbs. Supple round mouthfeel with velvety tannins and a medium to long aftertaste of black cherries, blueberries, liquorice, incense infusions and spicy dried herbs.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
