This Alamos Malbec 2006 from Argentina is one of several wines that I bought for Tom for Christmas. Tom is a Malbec kind of guy. In the glass it is purple and violet. The nose is vivid with pleasant spices, violets, and fruit. The feel in the mouth is graceful and supple, with black cherry and blackberry flavors along with black pepper and a hint of leather. The finish (with soft tannins) lasts a long time.
I chose this wine for our Sunday night dinner of homemade spicy spaghetti sauce (with pasta) along with steamed spinach and salad.
And since this wine is a Malbec, this would be a good spot to post this photo of our son Tony and his good friend George as they tasted wine (Malbec of course) in Buenos Aires this past summer.
And here is a photo of Trigger relaxing with us as we taste this Alamos Malbec 2006.
