A father's day gift. We had it with barbequed beef and chicken. Very smooth and a nice blend of Malbec and Bonarda grapes.

Thanks @Matthew Arnould BlackBerry, violets, tobacco. Light tannins. Herbal finish.

Deep, dark violet with cherry red hues. Huge fruit on the nose with cranberry, ripe cherries, and blackberries showing dominance. While a big wine, this manages a very silky mouthfeel with a touch of refinement, as well. Vanilla, smoked wood chips, strawberry, and heaps of dark fruit deliciousness. The Bonarda adds an herbal element to the blend that you don’t necessarily see coming. Those herbs take you to the long finish. A spectacularly fun wine.

Tikal’s 2014 Patriota Malbec-Bonarda offers vibrant blackberry, cassis and violet aromas complemented by smoky, spicy oak. Its berry and spice flavors are plush, sweet and open-knit but not a bit heavy, while the finish is suavely tannic and persistent. (ST)
