Tikal 2012 “Patriota” Malbec/Bonarda
Tikal’s 2012 Patriota is one of the most exciting wines on 2014’s Top 100 list, selling out in retailers across the country in record time. Probably not “record” time, but it was fast! By the time everyone realized how great this wine really was, it was sold out just about everywhere. Now for the good part: we have more! This will likely be the last of this wine we’ll see until the next vintage rolls around, so be sure to grab some while you can!
This Argentinian gem is a deep reddish purple wine with aromas of bright berry and cherry fruit. It’s big and juicy, like biting into a handful of fresh berries. Full bodied yet very balanced, with luscious layers of raspberry, cherry, and cocoa flavors. Just a hint of baking spice at the end brings it all together. Pairs well with grilled meats such as beef, pork, and smoked ham.
“A rich red, packed with concentrated flavors of blackberry, dark plum and mocha, featuring plenty of dark chocolate notes. Offers a ripe texture, with creamy accents and hints of savory herb on the long finish. Drink now through 2020”
