Tikal Jubilo 2008
Bordeaux Red Blends
from Argentina, South America
ratings pedigree (past vintages):
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.
alcohol by volume:
"The 2008 Jubilo is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Malbec aged for 12 months in 70% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it gives up an alluring nose of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, incense, black currant, and black cherry. This is followed by an already complex, velvety-textured, plush wine with layered fruit, excellent volume, impeccable balance, and a lengthy finish. Drink it from 2013 to 2023. "
The Wine Advocate
"A very dense, dark, overtly toasty style, with bittersweet cocoa and espresso notes leading the way for dark plum, currant preserves and roasted fig notes. The finish is dense and long, and this needs a little time to unwind. For fans of the style. Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Best from 2012 through 2015. 200 cases imported."
"Bright, deep ruby. Crushed blackberry, cassis and licorice on the nose. Densely packed, intense crushed fruit flavors are complicated by violet and dark chocolate flavors, with serious underlying structure and broad, dusty tannins giving the wine a harmonious character-as well as the backbone for some development in bottle. Showing very well today."
