(88+?) - Aug2010 - very surprisingly good. I've tried Tannat mainly from Uruguay (who adopted this grape similar to Argentina adopting the Malbec) and it was always no more than good.
This wine is very good. It needs time to open up (it had some initial alcohol extracts). After 30-45 min - on the nose, blackberry and plums. On the palate, plums, dry figs, cherries and hints of leather. Very good finish. Food friendly wine. Goes extremely good with rib eye steak.
An outstanding value!
