Tasting Notes: Makes a nice, dry alternative to similarly priced Argentinian Malbecs which more often than not, have too much residual sugar. Tannat is spicy and exotic, but still possesses an approachable layer of dark fruit on the smoky-olive and blueberry-infused nose and the full bodied, black plum and toasted oak palate with rustic acidity and charcoal tannins. A little rough around the edges, yet, utterly intriguing at its Under $15 price-point. Drink 2016-2018.
