Opinion: I wouldn't buy this again.
Other Comments: This is a steel fist in a velvet glove Ö minus the velvet glove. I never met a Tannat I didnít like until now. Tannat is a famously big, bold, bruiser but the best of them have some fruit to temper the power. Not this one. Enough tannin in this one bottle to supply an entire case. If only the wine were half as beautiful as the bottle. Not a good buy for $21.89 at Whole Foods. And, yes folks: all Tannats are palindromes, not just this one.
