In a recent tasting of ten Tannat wines, this finished first.  Pretty impressive for a wine that can be found under $15.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has black cherries, black licorice, a hint of sour cherries and slight spice.  Medium to full bodied.  Light tannins.  For such a young Tannat, this was quite accessible.  On the palate, black cherry fruit with just a bit of bell pepper.  Nice finish.  This probably should be consumed over the next three to five years.  It will work well with roasted chicken or even game.
