Tannat 2018

The old man carefully prunes his vines, moving from one to the next, kneeling as he cuts the old growth from the last vintage, preparing the vines for a new beginning following a cold winter day that sat over the vineyard like a dark blanket.

On the palate it is marked by a very firm tannin structure, (fitting, considering Tannat is a name derived from the word tannin) with a powerful yet freshening acidity livened up by flavors of hedonistically ripe black plum.
