Tikal Proprietary Blend Jubilo Mendoza Argentina 2007
This is the Asado wine you have been searching for! Deep blackcurrant and oak aromas with opaque red/purple color. Flavors of black cherry liqueur, red currants, and a touch of black tea. Lush without seeming heavy, the wine seems to unfold in layers, keeping the palate excited well past the lengthy finish. Plenty of tannin for aging without any harsh astringency. This Cabernet lover’s dream pairs well with most fine food presentations like duck in a fruit sauce, leg of lamb persillade, Osso Buco, and even a simple filet mignon. Also complements medium-strong cheeses (French, Italian, goat) or dishes prepared with mushroom or cream sauces.
Aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, espresso, blackberry and cassis. Lots of oak on the nose as well. Richly layered dark fruit on the palate. Nicely balanced tannin. Very nice. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 7/3/10

WA 93pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: The 2007 Jubilo is a 50-50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec aged for 12 months in 70% new French oak. A saturated purple color, the nose displays aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, espresso, black currant, and blackberry. Packed and stacked, this densely fruited effort is layered, spicy, and succulent. Give it 2-3 years of additional bottle age and drink it from 2011 to 2022.
