Tikal Patriota 2015
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Patriota was a similar blend of Malbec from the Valle de Uco (Vista Flores) and Bonarda from Ribadavia matured in oak barrels for some ten months. There is no astringency or herbal notes in this blend, and the Malbec is nicely complemented by the slightly rustic character of the Bonarda.
Wine EnthusiastSpicy red-berry aromas with an accent of musky, cheesy oak get this Malbec-Bonarda blend moving in an interesting way. A tight, pointy palate with lean acidity houses flavors of plum and berry along with creamy oak and vanilla. Lactic oak is a factor on an otherwise bright and spicy finish.
Wine SpectatorTaut and well-framed, with dried red fruit and spice flavors that feature porcino mushroom accents. Cedar and dried green herb details show on the finish. Bonarda and Malbec. Drink now.
