The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda in the Eastern region of Mendoza. The grapes for this wine come from the El Mirador vineyard in the Eastern region of Mendoza. The soil and climate there offer a perfect atmosphere for growing Bonarda. Ripe dark fruit aromas with hints of violet and anise give way to a juicy wine with black raspberry and black plum flavors along with notes of black pepper. The finish is soft with velvety tannins. Pair this wine with the strong flavors of game or the earthy flavors of mushrooms or with both in a dish like Braised Venison with Cremini Mushrooms.
