Tasters thought so so. Nothing special about this bottle.

Had 2017 on January 1,2020. Not a bad 100% Malbec. Light fruits and light tannins. Oak was not super noticeable. Was okay.

I enjoyed this Malbec with a meatloaf dinner, but it wasn’t to Pat’s liking. ($13)

Solid weekday bottle. Surprisingly balanced tannins. Could use a little more punch, but overall enjoyable.

I have discovered a wonderful Malbec at a local favorite restaurant of mine. This is LLAMA 2017 old vine malbec from Mendoza of coarse. Aged in French Oak for six months. Black berries, butter on initial palate. Oak and spice on the finish with a mild tartness , almost orange peal zest. This dissipates almost immediately. It is mildly dry and buttery thick on the mid palate. W o w!!!! My new go to at DePalmas Restaurant in Athens GA - East side!!! This is going in my SA wine tasting event!
