WA 89+ IWC 89 - "Dark berry fruit flavors, integrated with brown spice and vanilla oak characters that form a plush mouthfeel. The Tempranillo and Syrah grapes contribute bold, spicy flavors of blackberry and black pepper which marry well with the juicy dark cherry flavors of Bonarda and the deep plum flavors of the Malbec base. The addition of Cabernet Franc helps to balance the blend, as it melds with notes of warm brown spice to create a long, supple finish."

WA 89+ IWC 89 Pts -According to Wine Advocate - "The 2012 Alamos Red Blend is composed of 38% Malbec, 16% Syrah, 12% Bonarda, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Tempranillo and 6% Petit Verdot, from different vineyards in the Uco Valley. To achieve an alcohol level of 13.7% in a vintage like 2012 they do quite a bit of early harvest and search for Cabernet from cold locations like La Consulta. The result is quite aromatic, open, exuberant, and flowery, with a supple palate. It is tasty and with good acidity. Highly drinkable and very good value. Drink 2014-2017."

According to International Wine Cellar - "Saturated bright medium ruby. Medicinal blueberry and licorice aromas complicated by violet and chocolate nuances on the pure, scented nose. Plush and sweet on entry, then suave and pliant in the middle, with nicely integrated acidity framing the wine's sweet dark berry flavors. Lush tannins coat the tongue and teeth. Quite suave for the price range."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "Ripe plum and berry aromas come with spice notes before a supremely generous palate that’s loud and flavorful in blackberry, cassis and black cherry fruit. On the finish, chocolate and oak influences roll in as the tannins subside. For power, flavor and clarity, this is a sure bet."

According to Wine Spectator - "Polished, with a cedar overtone to the ripe plum fruit, followed by firm tannins on the finish. Malbec, Bonarda and Tempranillo. Drink now." 13.5% ABV.
