From the Winery:
Old Vine Malbec
LLAMA as its namesake, this wine embodies the distinctive spirit of our vineyards, spanning the foothills of the Andes. This Malbec was aged for six months on 3-year-old French Oak Barrels and then placed in bottles to age for a minimum of six additional months.
Modern wine with attractive dark cherry-red color with violet hues. The nose shows great intensity. Fruity aromas of cherries, blackberries and plums stand out against a background of fine toasty hints from ageing in top-quality oak. Warm, rounded and well-structured on the palate, with an explosion of fruit flavors underscored by light oaky notes. Pleasant, persistent aftertaste.
Malbec is a great match with any type of hard cheese such as Manchego, or barbequed meat dish with cracked black pepper.
