Grape Variety: 100% Tannat
Tasting Notes: This Tannat Dessert wine instils calmness with its polished tannins, radiant yet amber purple hue and its honey like texture. Its violet hue is accentuated by its robust nose of black licorice sun-dried on smoky eucalyptus. A mouthful of oven baked date and pistachio tart, leaving a long finish of dried black cherry.
