Odfjell Vineyards, Santiago
Malbec ORZADA Lontue Valley, 2011
The 2011 Malbec Orzada, certified organic and produced from 50 years old vines, contains 10% Syrah and spent 15 months in new French and American oak. Hints of game, balsamic, cherry cola, and assorted black fruits set the stage for a spicy, plush, full-bodied wine that deftly conceals enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for several years.
