First time trying a tannat - liked the finish. Spice and cocoa flavors but undefined fruit.

Excellent value for this quality at this price in a great vintage. Wish I had bought more.

Juicy red and purple fruits. Good tannins with acidity. Long finish. Cocoa. Dusty candied herbs. Inky black pepper.

Needs about an hour to really open and develop. Deep purple with the slightest tawney tint in this 2018. Nose is subtle red berries and herbal, sage and peppery. Very grippy tannins, chalky mouthfeel that masks some of the fruit up front. Fades into a nice long finish where fruit persists and lingers with some flint and spice. A good wine, not a great wine.

Deep ruby color; cassis, oak, and black cherries on the nose; high acidity; medium plus tannins; tastes like blackberries, plums, graphite, and crushed gravel with a long finish. Structures of world style with enough fruit to satisfy my new world palate. Nellie says it's ok. I love it.
