Tikal Patriota Mendoza

Expert Reviews

(a 60/40 blend; this contains more malbec than previously): Bright medium ruby. Deep, very ripe aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, bitter chocolate and sweet oak. Suave on entry, then distinctly sweet in the middle, with just enough acidity to maintain its balance. Very creamy, almost confectionery wine, best suited for fans of this style. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. Perfectly drinkable now.

5.0 of 5 Stars Absolutely delicious

This is a luscious wine - marrying some of the range of palate of a typical bourdeax, with a silky mouth feel and weight of a more fruit forward, new world flavor profile. Doesn't strike me as something that will necessarily age, but it's an absolute treat every time I drink it.

Would buy this again in a heartbeat. Fruit-forward and dee-lish. A bit spicy, probably from the Bonarda.

I don't know how to describe wine in "wine-ese" but I REALLY enjoyed the glass (or two) I had last night. I opened it mid-afternoon, and poured glass #1 around 7:00. After tonight I'll only have 5 bottles left... darn!

This wine needs a little time in the bottle but it is very good. I have some 09 Tikal Patriota that is wonderful. I think the 10 Tikal will be even better with a little patience.

Delicious malbec. I also have the amori. Both are excellent

The 2nd glass was much better than the 1st. It benefited from aeration which yielded a much smoother, more polished taste. Good wine for a picnic.
3.0 of 5 Stars Good, but no Amorio
By ,
Overall impression is overwhelming sweetness, approaching a cloying boysenberry rush. Saved by some nice floral notes. Good smooth texture and mouthfeel, just a big step down from the Amorio.

Actually could not drink this wine, neither could my wife. Tried multiple bottles, finally just discarded it. Possibly just a bunch of bad bottles. Definately had some carbonation present. I have bought about 70 different wines from wineaccess over the years, this is only the second time I could not drink what was deliverd.
