The nose of the 2013 Tannat shows dark fruit and notes of spice, ink and dried fruit. The palate follows the nose and shows a remarkably ripe tannic structure. It has a long and rich finish, with lingering notes of clove, dried fruits and baker’s spices.
The 2013 vintage shows the characteristics Tannat is known for: age-worthiness, mouth filling and full-bodied character with a powerful yet approachable tannin structure and depth of flavour. This wine was bottled in March of 2015 but it was given more time to age before its release in early 2017. Although this wine drinks well now, we expect it will continue to benefit from aging for up to ten years.
