Tikal Patriota

tikalWhat Possessed Us To Open Wine?
Friends to dinner who love Malbec. I headed down to the cellar and spotted this and KNEW it was the right one for the night!!

What Did The Label Want Us To Know?
60% Malbec, 40% Bonarda. YEA!!! We love this combination. It’s from Mendoza Argentina. It’s called “The Patriot” because those two grapes are at the core of winemaking in Argentina.

What’s So Great About It?
The color is amazing. We tasted it at a Bubbles on a Friday afternoon and we LOVED it then and had to buy a bottle. It tastes like chocolate, just slightly burnt. It’s smooth with a worn leather aroma. It’s just all good.
