Tikal Patriota Argentina Mendoza Rivadavia. Altamira. Vista Flores Mendoza Bonarda. Malbec S 2008
Aromas of bright berry/cherry fruit and electric-purple color. 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. Incredibly fun to drink!

This is the first Bonarda / Malbec blend that I have had with more Bonarda in it than Malbec. So I am not sure if the results here are typical but this is a really great wine. It is inky purple wine with loads of dark fruit, tobacco and oak. The mouth feel is much more rounded and smooth than a typical Malbec blend but the muscle is still there. I was impressed.
Beautiful color and nice big bold nose. Very wonderfully balanced dark fruits with a very nice finish!
Four and a half glasses

The 2008 Patriota is composed of 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec aged in French (40% new) and American (seasoned) oak. Purple/black in color, it has a splendid bouquet of cigar box, Asian spices, lavender, black cherry, and plum. Full-bodied, dense, rich,... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
