I have been enjoying Alamos Malbec 2009 for the last few days. Made from 100% Malbec grapes, grown in the
Mendoza region of , tt is one of my go-to table wines, good for drinking alone or with most foods. Also, more importantly, it’s less than $15 a bottle – recently I saw it on sale for only $9, but usually it runs $12-13. Either way, it’s a good deal and a good wine. Argentina
Garnet-colored, it’s a medium bodied wine, with scents of cloves and berries. It had a supple mouth feel. It was fruit forward, with soft tannins and tastes of stone fruits. It was not very complex, but felt very young and vibrant.
I’ve enjoyed it with a number of foods – chicken, beef, fish – and it’s held up well to all of them, though I have found it does best with beef, especially simply-prepared sirloins with sautéed vegetables.
A well made wine, it’s far from reaching the upper echelons, but it’s one of the best wines I’ve found in its price category, and that counts for a lot!
