From the home of the Tannat grape.  This wine is 100% Tannat aged for two years in steel tanks.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has strong X-mas spice notes along with black raspberries and a slight saw dust note (interesting as the wine sees no oak).  It has a lush texture with strong acidity.  Fresh black cherry fruit.  Firm tannins.  Long finish.  The question for this wine is whether the tannins fade before the fruit.  It will work better with heartier foods such as a beef stew or vegetarian chili.  Drink over the next four to seven years.
