2009 Tikal Jubilo Mendoza
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
(a 60/40 blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon, aged in 100% new French oak): Bright red-ruby. Licorice and chocolatey oak dominate the nose. Very ripe and thick but also juicy and serious, with a flavor of raspberry liqueur supported by serious tannic structure. Less confectionery than the Patriota or Jubilo bottlings, and a bit less easygoing today. Finishes broad, round, lush and fairly tannic, with strong chocolatey oak tones and good energy. This held up nicely with extended aeration.
