Tikal 'Amorio' Malbec 2015, Mendoza, Argentina


Mendoza, Argentina

60% Malbec & 40% Cabernet Franc

A blend of Malbec from different appellations in Mendoza, Amorio, or 'Love Affair' represents the deep and enduring feelings the Argentine people have toward the Malbec grape. It has aromas of smokey oak and cherry with mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate, it finishes with just enough grip to make it a real winner with food. This is a seriously sexy Malbec blend and pairs well with grilled or smoked meats such as beef, pork, and lamb. -Winemaker's Notes
91pts - Tim Atkins
"Amorio is a low-suphur Malbec from Paraje Altamira, made as part of Ernesto Catena's pool of naturally inclined wines. Dense and concentrated, with some damson and black fig notes, good concentration and supporting acidity."
90pts - Wine Spectator
"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."
