Tilia Malbec Syrah 2008
The 2008 Tilia Malbec-Syrah shows a bright purple color with violet highlights. The ose is full of rich black fruit aromas with light earth notes and a touch of roasted coffee. The mouthfeel is full and sweet, with juicy black cherry fruit flavors, a touch of chocolate and sweet spice from light oak aging. This finish is long and lingering, with ripe, velvety tannins.
I rate this wine 2008 wine with 88 points. Unusual nose very long but nice balanced. Wine is dry fruity with good tannin structure, berries throughout. What a bargain only $ 6.99 at Costco. Some people will not like this wine because of it's unusual taste but the wine lover who looks for something different will have a blast
Excellent! Great value. Good body. Great start and finish. Smooth but has some body. I only had one bottle but plan to try more.
just had a bottle of 2008 Malbec. Had no problem with it.
Probably, the worse wine I've tried in Hong Kong. And that vision is shared with the six people that shared the bottle.
Not a bad wine for less than $10 USD. It is a little tangy, but overall good for the price.

Sweet and savory aromas of hickory, BBQ and plum jam are nice, while the body is structured and full. The flavors follow the nose, meaning there's a savory, roasted quality to the wine but also jammy raspberry fruit notes. Chewy and a bit marinated, but it's quite good for the price.

Displays a mix of raspberry, blackberry and rhubarb fruit, with a layer of sweet toast coming in on the finish. Drink now.
Dark and full-bodied, with a big bouquet of coconut, char and blackberry. The palate is thick and chunky, and that seems right given the wine's sweet black-fruit and chocolate flavors. Add in some oak, baking spice and mocha and you've got a solid, tasty, generous wine.
Very sweet and forward, with ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit pushed by a creamy-textured, mocha-tinged finish. Maybe a bit too sweet and easy for some folks, but will have fans. Drink now.
