Llama Old Vine Blend from Belasco de Baquedano embodies the distinctive spirit of their vineyards, spanning the foothills of the Andes. Bringing together two of its most renowned varieties, Bonarda and Malbec, this blend boasts an elegant touch of violet, flavors of ripe strawberries, and soft, yet persistent, structure. Both Bonarda and Malbec are aged individually for six months in 3-year-old French oak barrels and then blended together to age for a minimum of six additional months in bottle. Cultivated from vines over 100 years old.
"Bright blueberry, orange peel and spice aromas. A full palate with generous dry tannins. An attractive malbec that's easy to enjoy now."-James Suckling, 90 points!
