Fruitier than what I usually drink, but all-in-all a nice wine. One question: why is the bottle so fucking heavy?

Love the Bonarda blended in. Ripe and bright, slight acidity, fairly earthy.

A very good and smooth wine. Light on the tannins, fruit forward, and slight peppery finish. Would buy this again, but make sure it's had a little time to age (3 years).

Tannic, black cherry, violets, meat and fresh lettuce leaves. Some matchstick on opening. Good two days later.

New grape for me I think. It goes well with Malbec. Typical Tikal richness and balance.

Very nice blend. Good fruit and mouthfeel. Malbec and Bonarda is very typical in Argentina and this one is great for the price

Blend of Malbec and Bonarda, very fresh tasting for a Malbec. Natural/biodynamic. $20 at Byron’s.
