2006 Alamos Malbec

for those of you who are always searching for good wines on a budget, the under $15 a bottle group, try this one. alamos malbec from argentina has been a favorite at the bald wine geeks home for several years. the nose is intense and complex, with leather and black cherry, and a little something i would call funky. you will have to give it a try and let me know if you agree. very fruity, plum flavors on the palate in the beginning. decant this and leave it sit for a while and just taste the difference. the wine gets earthy, the fruit flavors become deeper and more robust. the hints of licorice and spice come through. very good wine for the price, usually under $10 if you look in the right place.

This stuff is crazy good. At least two recent vintages have scored 89-90 by reputable reviewers.
