Tikal Malbec Altos de Mendoza Amorio 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 93 The 2008 Amorio is 100% Malbec which spent 12 months in 60% new French oak. A glass-staining opaque purple, it offers up a splendid bouquet of sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, layered, and long, this packed effort has enough structure to evolve for another 4-6 years. It will offer a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2023. Wine Tasting Notes Aromas of smoky oak and cherry. Mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries, red berries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate., and finishes with just enough grip to make it a real winner with food. Pairs well with grilled or smoked meats such as beef, pork, and lamb. Also complements dishes prepared with cheese or cream sauces. This is some seriously sexy Malbec.
