Belasco De Baquedano Llama Old Vine Malbec 2006

  • Area: Argentina, Mendoza
  • Grape: Malbec
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Rating: Black 94 Dilettante 94
Description: Dark, rich and lush elements of coffee, wood, earth, black fruit and spice are highlighted by soft florals. Silky smooth and wonderfully complex, this resembles a fine Bordeaux more than an Argentine Malbec. We will pick this one up again. A short decant loosens it up nicely.

Price: $14

Note: 98 year vines grown at over 3,300 foot elevation. The consulting wine maker is Bertrand Bourdil from Mouton Rothschild. He has received three, 100 point scores from Robert Parker.
