Jeg kjøpte noen kasser direkte fra produsenten.
Kirsebær. Øverste laget. Komplekse dufter av sjokolade og karamell. Den smakte bare druer.

For the price, this is one of the best Malbecs that I've tasted. Alamos Malbec 2014 is a classic entry-level Mendoza Malbec. It is harder to drink than other vintage but I think in 3 years it will be smoother! Anyway, great choice to start with Argentinian wine.
