Tannat 2020 4.5 star

 

Bold, beautiful and breathtaking. This powerful, inky, richly tannic red exudes concentrated liquorice, cherries and vanilla. Firm and complex, you will delight in lingering deliciousness.

Michael Cooper says "Full of youthful vigour, this Far North red was hand-harvested and matured in French oak casks (30% new).  It has full, purple-flushed colour.  Medium to full-bodied, it is savoury, with strong, vibrant, plummy, spicy flavours, showing very good complexity, and firm tannin backbone.  Best drinking 2023+.
