(bottled in magnums; 85% malbec, 10% bonarda and 5% torrontes): Saturated bright medium ruby. Dark berries and black cherry on the nose, complemented by sexy oak tones of chocolate, coffee and nuts. Like liquid silk on entry, then dense, lush and powerfully built, with flavors similar to the aromas. This plush, layered wine is quite sweet but not over the top. Finishes with huge, broad, fine-grained tannins and excellent chocolatey length. The Tikal wines are made by Ernesto Catena, who also bottles wines under his own label.
