    January 2, 2021 - Color, dark clear red; 1st nose, red fruits, plums, oak & hint of vanilla. 2nd nose, pomegranate and currants. One the palate, medium to big body with layers of complex fruits and balance tannins. Long finish.

    December 27, 2020 - This is off the charts QPR with layers of complexity on the nose and palate.

    Aromas of wild blueberry, ripe black plum, blackberry jam and violet. Gamey, smoked meat and an earthy funk. Oak notes of hot chocolate powder and worn leather.

    Huge wine in the mouth. Grippy tannins, high alcohol and balanced acidity.

    Flavours of ripe and jammy black fruit, leather, alcohol and earth.

    At this price, I'd buy a few and watch them improve with time.

    December 24, 2020 - We tried this on Christmas Eve (2020) with ham and pork tenderloin. We were very disappointed with the lack of fruit on the nose, plus the wine seemed to have a little bit of funk that mostly burned off after having it in the glass 10-15 minutes.

    The wine lacked the softest of Merlot which it’s closest to for a varietal standpoint, and also had a tannic finish. We don’t prefer this wine!

    November 29, 2020 - Wow, this is some inky wine. I am on a stretch of tasting some lesser known varietals for the next few days. Tannat is very popular in South America and is very tannic and raw. I am cooking Strip steaks and Cevapcici sausages, made from ground lamb which is fatty and spiced- I hope the pairing works.

    The nose is blackberry jam, some charred oak and red licorice. On the palate it is as expected- fruity, primal, tannic and delicious. This is a wine made for a big South American Asado (grilling). The midpalate is so juicy it makes me pucker. Black currants, blackberry and a touch of mint all hit me. The wine is tannic, but not over dry. Black tea and licorice flavor the back end and the finish has a hint of charcoal. There is a definitive oak influence but it is deft and delicious. 91 points and 5 stars for this $15 Tannat. If you have never ventured into the lesser knowns, here is a good starting point. Drink till 2025.

    November 21, 2020 - Bought one to try. Big dark colour. Rich fruit on nose slightly baked. Rich on palate but enough structure to balance. Unsurprisingly tannins prominent but well tamed. Plenty of interest. Not for the faint hearted but enjoyed it .
