Intense aromas of lead pencil, cola, cedar and blackberry are complete. The palate feels lush and smooth but weighty, with sweet, ripe berry fruits and well-applied notes of toasty oak, vanilla, cola and tobacco. The finish is warm, smooth and mocha laden. Drink now–2014.
Tight and compact at first, then it shows a lot of rustic leather, herbs and olive along with plum, berry and ample oak. This is a charged wine, and its power is omnipresent even if it shows only moderate depth and structure. Finishes toasty, with mocha and cappuccino aftertastes.
Tiza is a very good Malbec with ripe, minty, lush aromas that lead straight to juicy black plum and blackberry flavors. It’s intense and powerful, but shows good balance, generosity and proper but strong oak. Expect plenty of kick, power and darkness from this wine. Drink throughout 2009 and into 2010.
