Tikal Amorio Malbec 2015
*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Aromas of smoky oak and cherry. Mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries, red berries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate, and finishes with just enough grip to make it a real winner with food. This is some seriously sexy Malbec. Pairs well with grilled or smoked meats such as beef, pork, and lamb. Also complements dishes prepared with cheese or cream sauces.
The 2015 Amorío is now pure Malbec from two vineyards in Altamira. It fermented with native yeasts in concrete vessels and rolling barrels and matured in 225-liter barriques for 12 months followed by a further 14 months in 3,500-liter oak vats. From this vintage on, it will have the Paraje Altamira appellation. It is quite fresh from the vintage, with low alcohol and an austere palate. It surprised me with its serious personality and the verticality on the palate. 24,000 bottles were filled in August 2017.
Well-sculpted, with pure and concentrated dark cherry, currant and raspberry components that are backed by fresh acidity. Finishes with luscious dark chocolate and spice accents. Drink now through 2022. 4,300 cases made. -KM
