Natalie's Score: 92/100

A robust red with great depth and complexity at an excellent price point. Syrah add so much character to this blend with fleshy blackberries and cherries. It's full-bodied, balanced and smooth. Perfect for grilled meats and hard cheeses. Highly recommended.

Malbec food pairings: herb-roasted lamb, pork tenderloin, cheddar cheese, spaghetti and meat balls.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Plum skin, black currants and blackberry compote wrap around a smokey core of tarred black cherries, gunpowder, candied violets and spice. This is a steak wine. 89 Points.
From La Consulta, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Alamos 2015 is a seriously deep and complex Malbec at an excellent price point. Syrah add so much character to this blend with fleshy blackberries and cherries. It's full-bodied, balanced and smooth. Enjoy now. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
