Eclipse Drôme Tannat 2014

Maybe there aren’t any bottles floating around anymore, but I got lucky and snagged one. This is super juicy Tannat, which is not something I ever thought I’d say or hear. Dried cherries, super ripe plums, some underripe blueberry, a bit of funk on the nose. Graphite and leather too. There’s still great acidity which makes this gulpable. it’s an interesting wine, this mixture of dried fruits but bright and juicy acidity feels like it should be two different wines, but it’s not in any way disjointed or threadbare. It’s just got serious backbone, and long tannins. Like a northern Rhône Syrah without the floral aspects. It’s slightly meaty and spicy when first opened. The empty glass is restrained but all violet. I wish I could’ve had this a couple of years ago but it’s still really lifted yet soft tonight. — 18 days ago

Viña Progreso

Suenos de Elisa Tannat 2011

Racy and dark, acidic sour Japanese plum. Licorice nose. Heavy tannins and a strinkingly clean finish from that acid rinse. Begs for braised short ribs or lamb gyro with cucumber dill yogurt sauce. Gets meatier and meatier as it opens up. — a month ago
