Stellar aged Tannat which could pass for older Bordeaux. Graphite and leather and dried cherries.

A dark, intense, almost opaque wine with a perfumed nose of plums and tobacco with blackberries and cassis on the palate, followed by firm but smooth tannins and a long acidic finish redolent of blackberries. .

Tanino espetacular, mas melhoraria muito em alguns anos. Uma explosão de especiarias e cereja.

Pomegranate, cedar, cobwebs, vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon, cotton, tar, iron, macerated strawberries, menthol. Tastes more herbal than it smells - rosemary, basil, chalk, sand. It is full, smooth, and acidic. Very complex. Sell to a Boudreaux drinker.

This one is aging with some elegance. Medium intensity, low tannins, minimal oak, but in a good quality package with blackberry and dark cherry on palate.
