Top 10 wines in the US press

Alamos, Argentina, Mendoza, Red Blend 2012, $8.99-$10.49

Alamos, Argentina, Mendoza, Red Blend 2012This wine was recommended by Rebecca Murphy in the Dallas Morning News. She wrote: “Malbec is not the only grape in Argentina, and this wine shows that it plays well with others — namely Bonarda, also known as Charbono, and Tempranillo. It’s a veritable fruit bowl of flavours: black plums, red cherries, black cherries and strawberries, doused with a sprinkle of woody spices. It’s all corralled by savoury acidity and mellow tannins. Enjoy it with a burger or a side of baby back ribs.”

She added: “The high altitude means more direct sunlight, which means more colour and flavour in the grapes. It’s also high desert, with warm daytime temperatures to ripen fruit and very cool nighttime temperatures to maintain acidity that makes for freshness in a wine.”
