Tilia Malbec 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Black cherry and plum on the nose is accompanied by light floral notes and a hint of vanilla. This leads to a full mouthfeel with rich and concentrated flavors of cassis and black berry fruit along with a touch of sweet spice from light oak aging. Pair with grilled meats, salmon and spaghetti with meat sauce.

Sweet and luscious, with hints of blackberry, cinnamon and clove, almost like a mulled wine – great for a chilly evening. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=191)

Blackberry and black stone aroma. Slightly cooked. Tastes like cigar box, black fruit and stone, black olive, lively acidity, mildly broad tannin. Good value at $9 for a slightly eco conscious winery without the loss of flavor, but in this case bolder character.

Ripe yet focused, this shows layered flavors of spice and brick dust framing the jammy blackberry and boysenberry notes that stretch out in the finish. Drink now.

The 2011 Tilia Malbec, once again from Eastern Mendoza and Uco Valley raised in oak for six to nine months; has an attractive, comparatively complex bouquet of blackberry, wild hedgerow, crushed stone and black pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with tense, edgy tannins on the entry that counterpoise the tight ball of blackberry, briary and minerals with style. It builds nicely in the mouth, leading to a firm, black olive-tinged finish that lightly grips the mouth. Excellent. Drink now–2018.

Medium red-ruby. Blackberry, black cherry, licorice and a whiff of tar on the nose. Sweet, smooth dark fruit and licorice flavors are given shape by ripe acidity. Nicely creamy in the middle. The tannins lightly dust the teeth on the long finish. A real overperformer: this appealing malbec is better than a lot of chunky, overripe and/or overextracted examples of the variety at considerably higher prices.
