Ripe red fruit aromas with ints of violet and anise give way to a juicy wine with raspberry and plum fruit flavors along with notes of black pepper. The finish is soft with round, velvety tannins.
Pair with barbequed chicken or pasta with red sauce.
The 2011 Tilia Bonarda comes from the El Mirador vineyard in east Mendoza and sees light oak aging for six to nine months. It has a pure, floral bouquet with dark cherries and cassis aromas that are well-defined and pure. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very good weight. There is an underlying minerality here, a sense of symmetry that is very satisfying. Light on its feet and pretty on the saline-tinged finish, this is a superb Bonarda.
