Los Alamos

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Gallo Family Wines.

After giving you a little break from all things Argentina (seeing as how I reviewed about 24 Argentinian wines in a row during the Twitter Taste Live Wines of Argentina events….) I am back in an Argentinian kind of mood!  Tonight we opened the 2008 Alamos Torrontes. It had a Diam closure, clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume, and retails for under $9.  (I like that price point!)

On the nose I found white flowers, tropical spices, honeysuckle, apricot, pineapple, and lemon. Typical of many Torrontes the nose was very aromatic.  In the mouth I got spice, citrus, lemon tart, sweet tarts, and some tropical notes. I thought that at $9 this showed all the hallmarks of a solid Torrontes.
