Enjoyed this wine. Great fruit flavors with light oaky notes. Fruit notes of cherry, plum and blackberries. #malbec

Llamatastic! Lovely purple color, smells like some kind of dried leaf... tea or tobacco maybe. Cold climate comes through, not overly fruit forward, a nice tannic quality without being too big. I like!

Bramble on the palate, blackberry mostly. Not for me, but know some who would love this wine.

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!
