Maisano's; 17.99; 4/2016. Deep ruby with purple hint. Slow legs

nose: black fruit (plum, black cherry?), chocolate, grilled meat

Palate: dense and fruity; chewy and spicy. Really lingers. Pomegranate? Hint of blueberry. Nice acidity.

Really good wine. Solid. Fruit/acid/tannin/minerality in a complete cynergy. Smokey, spicy, blackberry, pepper. BBQ or grilling wine. I want more of this from Argentina

Bold color and fruit, generous but not overdone extraction. Balanced acidity and moderately firm tannins. Slightly less Tannat than just good red given its accessibility, but loads of fun to sip!

Much lighter and more fruity forward than other Tannats I have had. Less tannins, too.

High acidity and lots of raspberry. There's a little bit if spice and a touch of smoke that lingers. Perfect for this crappy, snowy night!

Smokey, wild field berries, firm tannin. Want to drink this by a fire pit on a cool autumn night.

Smoky, leather, BBQ nose with fruit. Amazingly light on the tongue with such a distinct nose. Light Apple taste. This is a unique wine. I like it, alot.

Brilliant ruby magenta colour. Nose of juicy ripe blackberries and blueberries with a undertone of cinnamon. Very juicy on the palate, smooth and easy drinking. Good party wine.

Meaty, beef jerky nose - smoky. Tasty, thick in the start backs off as it passes the tongue. Nice fruity flavor but not sweet. Good.
