Alamos Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Dark berries and spice on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Moderately tannic finish with berries, cocoa, and green herbal notes
I've sampled a lot of Alamos Malbec over the years, but not much of the Cabernet Sauvignon. For $10, this is a nice value Cab from Argentina. I found it interesting that it was better the second night it was open (kept sealed in the refrigerator during the day). The green herbal note on the finish was less pronounced and the effects of oxidization were not obvious. I recommend this be added to your "every day wine" repertoire. Enjoy, and raise a glass!
