Tikal Malbec Blend Patriota 2003

Member Review by Katrin:

Tikal Patriota is a blend of 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec – Argentina’s top two grape varieties. Despite being a 2003, this wine is still a very dark purplish garnet, with very little difference between rim and core. The nose is blackberry and plum jam with vanilla oakiness. It coats the mouth, with moderate acidity and relaxed tannins, but is quite full-bodied. Its black fruit is complemented by mocha, spiciness, and a hint of smoke. My only real criticism of this wine is that it is packaged in a bottle that is unnecessarily heavy. Read more about this wine and see additional wine reviews at: www.winedinewith.us.

Earthy nose, thick blueberry and rosemary jam. Might as well be sherry. $26 88 points WKH

Amazing value for what you get in this bottle. Fruit forward and very low tannins. If you let Patriota breathe, she'll give you a whole new gear. Red berries, blackberry, cola, spice, and a hint of vanilla. Full bodied and has an almost silky feel on the palate. Love this wine. It's a 60% Bonarda, 40% Malbec blend.
