Funky Llama Tempranillo 2004

Funky LlamaPrice: $9
Maker: Funky Llama
Variety: Tempranillo
Packaging: Bottle, artificial cork
Our Rating: 8.5 out of 10

Tempranillo tends to be a lighter wine than many other reds, but Funky Llama Tempranillo 2004 is no wimpy wine. It has a prominent raspberry jam nose. On the palate, it’s juicy but well balanced, with red berries and cherries up front and a lengthy finish that’s a bit spicy and tart. This Tempranillo has a lot of character, and will stand up to heavier fare than most examples of this varietal.

Funky Llama has a nice marketing approach – a cute name suggestive of South America, brightly-colored neon corks, and drinkable wines. Not a bad approach in a crowded market for cheap wines.

    I love your label–wine is good too. Do you have a poster available? I would love to have one so I can
    frame and hang in my bar. Thanks.
