The 2011 Tikal Patriota is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Bonarda from Vista Flores and La Vendimia, Argentina. It is aged in French and American oak for 12 months (30% new.) On the palate you taste dark berries, raspberry, and wild strawberry which compliments the firm tannic finish. This wonderful wine does not finish dry. Pairs well with charizo or Chocolove’s raspberry chocolate here in Zillie’s.
