Amalaya 2009

Amalaya 2009 is another one of the cool new wines we’ve been tasting.

It’s a Malbec blend from the Calchaqui Valley in northwestern Argentina.

It’s a big, bright-tasting red, big but the fruit taste is not dark fruit but more like cherry.

Very different and appealing. This is another wine that we could make a regular.

(The label says that “Amalaya” means “hope for a miracle” in the language of the indigenous people of the Calchaqui Valley. Cool.)
