Alamos Bonarda 2006 Wine Review (NW)



Tasting notes:

Aromas of crushed berries on the nose

Juicy and rich on the palate

Finish of raspberry jam and trace pepper notes

Like all the wines of Alamos, this is a great value at $10 or so. It's well made and delivers a very fruity package. While I often see their Malbec bottlings, I don't often see the Bonarda which is just a bit more off-the-beaten-path. I encourage you to grab one if you see it- and grab a bottle of the basic $10 Malbec, too. Great value wines are coming from Argentina! In this case, thank you Alamos. And raise a glass!

One of my favorite low cost Malbecs.
