Product description

The 2014 Amorío is different, as it's mostly Malbec with some 15% Petit Verdot, going back to the original blend for this bottling. This is riper and also creamier, it feels rounder and with a lactic note. This is round and fleshy, tasty, with a soft texture.

-Tikal is owned by Ernesto Catena and is named after his son. Ernesto spent his childhood in the vineyards of Mendoza among wine-growers and local pundits. “Amorío is sold later, so I started with the 2013 Amorío, a blend of Malbec with 40% Cabernet Franc from their biodynamically-farmed estate vineyards in Vista Flores, in the Valle de Uco. The wine matured in French and American oak barrels for 14 months. I think the two varieties work very nicely together. There is great balance here and a mixture of peppery notes and floral aromas, very balanced and fresh. This blend is a one-off, as it's usually Petit Verdot. Here you have a nice texture and a combination of the rounder tannins from the Malbec and the sharper, more austere ones from Cabernet Franc. “
