Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon- Wine Tasting 6

Name: Alamos

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon

Region: Mendoza

Country: Argentina 

Vintage Year: 2020

Price: $13

Winery Review: Berry and plum aromas are ripe and woody, with a note of sawdust appearing on the nose. This has zest and zing on the palate, along with creamy weight, while flavors of toast, wood resin and baked blackberries finish smoky and plump.

Wine Folly: "The world's most popular wine is a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc that originated in Bordeaux. Wines are concentrated and age-worthy. The rich flavor and high tannin content in Cabernet Sauvignon make it a perfect partner to rich grilled meats, peppery sauces, and dishes with high flavor." (pg. 88)

My Review: This dark plum wine was delightful! It had strong tannins and a dry mouthfeel that carried through every sip. Unlike other wines, this Cabernet Sauvignon did not taste distinctly grapey. This wine felt very natural and left a soft oak taste lingering in my mouth. This is a perfect fall wine! Overall, I give Alamos' Cabernet Sauvignon an 8.5/10.

I had this on its own with no food.
