Tikal Malbec Amorio 2007
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.
On the nose, the wine was very complex, with blackberry jam, blueberry, nutmeg, dark chocolate, and cinnamon aromas followed by the slightest touch of fresh mint leaves. In the mouth, it was fully of berries and sweet spices. The wine had big tannins, strong acidity, and a nice body. For a full review of this wine, visit my blog at: http://bit.ly/cr4uJf
This was great with a pork chop and quail .. .60 percent Bonarda, 40 percent Malbec.
