So funny compaired to the other coments. I found this Tannat light compaired to the other five I have tasted. Reminds me of Chanti not a big bold in you face tannat. All that being said for under 15 bucks its not bad but i probably wouldnt buy it again

Decanted for over 2 hours & could've gone longer. Almost artificial grape juice aromatics with some toasty oak notes. Dark blackberry in color. Charcoal notes mixed with a boysenberry jamminess. Smooth finish. Big crowd pleaser

Nice wine. Abrasive at first but opening up to some time fruit. Surprised that I actually prefer the earth and aggressive tannins of the beginning.

Surprising strong overall at this price point.
Definitely decant if you have the time.

Lovely depth. A slight harshness upon decanting. Begs to be paired with lamb

High acidity upon first taste but quickly dissipates. Sour taste with a bitter aftertaste. Very nicely dry. Oaky smell with unexpected flavors. Expected to be a full bodied wine but extremely easy to drink - color of the wine gives away its lightness in taste
