Nice dark color i the glass. Woody nose with some volatiles. Very fruity--cherries, strawberries--on the tip of the tongue. Not a very full-bodied wine. Probably best characterized as a "pop-n-pour" with no aging potential. A reasonably quaff, but nothing to brag about. US$8.99 at Wine Club.

I am writing this after the wine has been open for a few days. We have enjoyed this wine. And it is "strong" enough to still be good after being open for 3 days. It's OK, maybe a bit to grapey. It's tasty, in the jammy way, but also a little to hot/alcoholic.

Juicy yet dark, offering lively crushed plum fruit character framed by hints of charred herb and mocha. Drink now.

The 2012 Tilia Bonarda is sourced from old parral vineyards in eastern Mendoza. This particular wine has seen no oak (it depends on the year) and is darker and more concentrated than your average Bonarda, probably because of the very old vines. The nose has a blend of red and black fruits with some notes of spices and flowers. The medium-bodied palate reveals a supple, clean, delineated wine. Very pleasurable and a great value. Drink 2014–2017.

A plump, juicy red, with enough spicy plum and black cherry notes to carry earth and spice undertones. Drink now.

The 2011 Tilia Bonarda comes from the El Mirador vineyard in east Mendoza and sees light oak aging for six to nine months. It has a pure, floral bouquet with dark cherries and cassis aromas that are well-defined and pure. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very good weight. There is an underlying minerality here, a sense of symmetry that is very satisfying. Light on its feet and pretty on the saline-tinged finish, this is a superb Bonarda. Drink now–2016.
