This ‘Patriotic’ old-vine Bonarda and Malbec is blended to perfection.
Deep reddish purple with aromas of bright berry/cherry fruit. Big body yet very balanced with luscious layers of raspberry, cherry, and cocoa flavors. Just a hint of baking spice at the end brings it all together.
A great companion to grilled or smoked meats. Pairs well with beef and pork, and even pizza with meat toppings.
Crushed blackberries, dried herbs, spices and flowers. A round yet fleshy and juicy delivery of malbec and bonarda, delivering richness as well as drinkability. Pretty long, too.James Suckling March 2022
The 2020 Bonarda-Malbec Tikal Patriota is a 60/40 blend from La Consulta, Uco Valley. Purple in hue. The nose offers notes of raspberry and blackberry with a hint of herbs and faint aromas from the aging process. Quite smooth and expansive on the palate with mild freshness, fruity flavors gather at the back of the mouth followed by oak aromas right at the end. An accomplished wine.Vinous September 2022
