2010 Tikal Jubilo Bordeaux Blend
Mendoza, Argentina

Oh so yummy and layered. Pretty intense, dried black fruits, hints of oak, and nicely integrated tannins. Yet another talented member of the Catena family makes a fine contribution for our drinking pleasure.

Winemaker's Notes
"This is the Asado wine you have been searching for! Deep blackcurrant and oak aromas with opaque red/purple color. Flavors of black cherry liqueur, red currants, and a touch of black tea. Lush without seeming heavy, the wine seems to unfold in layers, keeping the palate excited well past the lengthy finish. Plenty of tannin for aging without any harsh astringency. This Cabernet lover's dream pairs well with most fine food presentations like duck in a fruit sauce, leg of lamb persillade, Osso Buco, and even a simple filet mignon. Also complements medium-strong cheeses (French, Italian, goat) or dishes prepared with mushroom or cream sauces."

Technical Notes
"60% Malbec/40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged sixteen months in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels. 14.1% alc."
Stephen Tanzer
"92 pts ... Black cherry and licorice on the nose, plus a hint of tea leaf. Sweet and creamy in the mouth but with harmonious acidity giving shape and definition to the concentrated black cherry, dark berry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with a firm spine of fine chocolatey tannins and fresh acidity. "
