    Give It A Shot - Alamos Malbec 2018

    Just when you thought we couldn’t possibly do another wine podcast, we have gone and done the unthinkable; another wine podcast! For those of you counting along with us at home, that’s three in a row and all of them are Malbecs or have Malbec as the dominant grape. After the mixed results of the previous two left us wondering if we were mis-remembering Malbec, we decided to put an end to this particular beverage arc by trying a Malbec that we would consider a benchmark, one that we are familiar with and know that we have liked in the past. The beverage that we are trying for this episode is the Alamos Malbec 2018. Like the previous two wines, this also comes from Argentina. What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - 2010 Alamos Torrontes (Video)

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.  I know this is not the consensus of most people who live in Arizona, but it is getting too warm too early.  Temperatures are already in the mid 80s and it feels like fall just ended.  Yes I said fall.  We don't have winter.  What we do have with these increasing temperatures is an excuse to find a white wine that will work well with these warmer days.  The 2010 Alamos Torrontes is our first attempt through video this year to find that wine.  Purchased at Trader Joe's, but not exclusive to them, this grape variety hails from Argentina and like most grapes has the capability for high quality in the right hands.  We shall find out.
