2012 Alamos Malbec

Community Tasting Note


Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - I knew this was going to be a mistake. Against my better judgement, I think I could use some inexpensive mid-week wines. $6.99 on sale. Even though I am not a malbec fan, what the hell. I was hoping too cheap to be overoaked, hopefully it was steel, concrete, or neutral wood. That back of my mind was concerned about chips, powder, whatever monkey shines occur with these inexpensive mass-marketed wines that I never drink. Sure enough blueberry/black plum/vanilla milkshake mess... In the old days, buying a cheap wine guaranteed you were not going to get an oaky mess since no one could afford to use new barrels on cheap wine.
