Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
TILIA Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Wine Review
Juicy, rich and full-bodied with a nice grip on the palate. Luscious dark fruit and some toasty oak. Fantastic price! 4.4/5 Best Beef Wine

Tilia, the Latin name for Linden, is a traditional tree throughout the wine country of Mendoza. Its flowers are used to make a popular herbal tea with calming properties.
The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda, winery in eastern Mendoza dedicated to the value segment of the Argentine domestic market.
The Tilia wines are made by Alejandro Viggiani, a winemaker and viticulturalist in charge of all Catena family vineyards in eastern Mendoza.
The Tilia wines are made with a blend of fruit sourced from the Eastern and Southern regions of Mendoza.
The 2010 Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of red fruit flavors, sweet spice and a touch of fresh mint. Garnet jewel toned, this Cabernet Sauvignon is full and soft with layers of red currant and cassis, notes of cigar box, leather and ripe black fruits. The wine finishes with finely grained tannins that add structure and length.
