2006 Tikal Patriota
60% Bonarda / 40% Malbec
Back in December, Jay Miller of Robert Parker's " The Wine Advocate," gave it 92 POINTS, BUT the wine wasn't yet scheduled for release. SO NOW we are tickled as Malbec grapes that this amazing wine is in stock and shipping!
Ernesto Catena, owner of Tikal Winery, pursues everything pleasurable in life. This hedonism (in the very best sense of the word) shows through in his wines. Ernesto strives to produce wines that are obvious in their power, yet reveal much more to the attentive palate. (They are also known to drink very well late into the evening---and sometimes until dawn!)
