I did not take notes as these wines were served over a casual lunch with the Tikal staff.

Photos of; their Labyrinth Vineyard, various grape varietals grown for show around their offices and Lamas they keep on their Bodega property.

Solid bold fruit forward Malbec/Syrah. Should give it more for being organic.

Docked points for the insanely heavy "mine is bigger than yours" bottle. The wine is...fine. Oak sticks out a bit awkwardly.

A nice wine on a cold night. Smooth and silky blend.

I have a terrible cold so I feel like I'm drinking delicious water. There's a vaguely saline note, I swear I smelled cinnamon, and there's a super peppery aftertaste.
