2012 Tikal Patriota Mendoza
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
89 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2014
(a 60/40 blend of malbec and bonarda): Bright medium ruby. Aromas of blackberry, licorice, menthol, coffee, bitter chocolate and spicecake. Sweet and fine-grained, with dark berry and spicecake flavors carrying a full load of chocolatey oak. No shortage of acidity here. Finishes with sweet, chewy tannins, a repeating note of exotic oak spices and a bit of alcoholic warmth.
