Alamos 2008 Malbec

Alamos 2008 Malbec, $7.64-$8.99, 89 points, is black with just a hint of burgundy-red near the clear class rim.
The aroma is subtle cherry trending near closed.
Full bodied with fair acidity and mild to moderate tannin carries a rather smooth, quite drinkable red wine, that for the money, has a very good Quality-Price-Ratio.
A delicious red wine with hints of plum, black currant, violets, wood notes, and mint.
Finishing on a trailing palate, with a gathering and escalating spice which accentuates the 13.5% alcohol and a touch of eucalyptus, caps-off an excellent wine tasting.
