2016 Estate Tannat

The tannins in Tannat are like the redness in a ruby, the distinctive property of the entity defines it. Dense, opaque, and inky-dark, Tannat has been touted as one of the healthiest wines due to high levels of antioxidants such as resveratrol. It has full-bodied structure with fruit-forward components of black plums, black currants, and boysenberries. Cardamom, licorice, and figs at the fringe accentuate the profile. With poised acidity, the hefty mid-palate has wonderful lift. The finish may seem abrupt at the outset, but the notes somehow realign – slightly piquant but delectably savory and characteristically tannic, staying true to its identity.
