Nice nose, very nice balance low to no tanins. Medium finish good deal at price point

Dark, chalky, and smooth, but the fruit is undefined. Nice, but not special.

100% tannat. 7 yrs old and still bright on the edges. black cherries/berries, cedar, intense flavor, medium weight with a lot of structural heft. firm tannins, medium + acid. cool stuff. geek alert

Dense fresh layers of blue and black fruit shroud the power of this wine...with lamb chops and lamb cavatelli it shows its balance.

If you haven't had any wines from Madiran, you're missing out.

Beautiful and balanced red blend. Just the right fruit, not too much alcohol content and and a nice grippy finish.
