Alamos crafts quality wines from Argentina, offering the best of Mendoza's high altitude vineyards at an incredible value. Alamos grapes are grown at foothills of the Andes Mountains at elevations of 3,000 to 5,000 feet, where intense sunlight, cool evening temperatures and mineral-rich irrigation from mountain snowmelt translate to rich wines with intense flavour characteristics. A blend of four vineyards - vineyards are divided into lots that are harvested at different times.
The Catena Zapata Malbec shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.
