Funky, vibrant, interesting. A wine that will could scare off some people. High alcohol, VA, and an array of brambly fruit, stemmy herbaceous-ness, some mousy character, and crushed rocks mingle about. This needs a lot of aeration to sort itself out. An interesting wine that may have gave more pleasure as a conversation piece than actually drinking it. Curious if this bottle or not

A little furry (tannins) before decant. Black fruits with a slight tar finish. Would never guess Tempranillo. Would pair well with lamb. SS

Almate 2015 firing on all cylinders, with the purity of red fruit layered over fine tannins, vibrant acidity, and alluvial minerality. #fourlayerdip

Blind. I was torn between Tempranillo and Malbec at first. Foolishly boarded the Malbec train which took me down the Bdx path. I don't drink enough wine from outside of NZ anymore.

Really good example of the variety. Not a game changer, but nothing to fault. Very enjoyable, and I was told it was very cheap. If so, amazing qpr.

So nice we had it twice. Lots of bang for the buck.

Well-made, but a bit too green and fruit forward for our taste.
