Tasting Notes:
La Linda Old Vines Malbec has a bright and lively purple color.  It has all the characteristics of the variety on the nose: red fruits, floral notes and delicate hues of vanilla typical of their balanced partial ageing in oak barrels.  It is an intense and juicy red wine, with a very firm tannic structure and a balanced acidity.  It is a complex, round wine, long on the palate and with a deep and elegant finish.  Besides, it is an excellent example of the expressiveness of the terroir from Mendoza.

Ageing potential:
6 years.

Recommended wine serving temperature:
Between 16°C to 18°C.

Recommended pairings:
It is a perfect match for red lean meat, lamb and pastas with not very spicy tomato sauces.  It also pairs well with hard cheeses.
