2015 Tikal - Malbec


2015 Tikal

Patriota Malbec / Bonarda



The 2015 Patriota was a similar blend of Malbec from the Valle de Uco (Vista Flores) and Bonarda from Ribadavia matured in oak barrels for some ten months. There is no astringency or herbal notes in this blend, and the Malbec is nicely complemented by the slightly rustic character of the Bonarda. Wine Advocate 90

(13.8% alcohol): Dark red-ruby. Very sexy spicy oak lift to the aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and licorice. At once juicy and supple, with good energy and a glossy oak element to the strong blackberry and licorice flavors. Quite silky and deep for this bottling. The rising finish features supple tannins, subtle sweetness and an absence of rough edges. An outstanding value. -- Stephen Tanzer 91
