Tikal "Patriota" 2011
Deep reddish purple with aromas of bright berry/cherry fruit. Like swallowing a whole bowl of mixed ripe berries at once. 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. Pairs well with grilled meats such as beef and pork, smoked ham, and even pizza with meat toppings. 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec This wine is called Patriota, or Patriot, for Bonarda and Malbec have been at the core of Argentine winemaking since its foundation.
