2009 Tikal Patriota Mendoza
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - December 2010
(A 60/40 blend of bonarda and malbec): Bright ruby. Aromas of black cherry, mocha, coffee and violet complicated by sexy oak. The flavors of blackberry, spices, violet and bitter chocolate are juicy and nicely delineated. Offers lovely texture and weight, but with good lift from the malbec component. A very good blend. Bonarda, which often produces rather rustic, blue-collar wine, clearly benefited from Mendoza's very warm 2009 growing season.
