“Medium dark red. The nose on this unoaked Tannat shows blackberry and red
berry notes. It’s soft on the attack and fruit forward with firm ripe tannins, herbs and red fruit notes, a bit on the dry side. Reveals good freshness and purity but a little light on the mid-palate. Goes through cold maceration for 3-4 days prior to fermentation.”

“Reticent berry aromas are dusty like a warm radiator. This Tannat feels healthy but
regular, with a medium-bodied palate. Slightly salty plum and berry flavors are lightly herbal on the finish.”

Medium ruby red. Revealing a perfume of fresh dark red fruit with notes of earth and dried herbs, this Tannat offers a lot for the price. The mouth feel is soft, the flavors fresh with interwoven fruit and a hint of tobacco, finishing long.

“Spicy berry aromas introduce this wine’s smoky, rubbery nose. It has lean, punchy
red plum and cherry flavors and a tangy, leafy finish with citrus notes.”
