rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

If you never tried Tannat, this Bodegas makes the best example of it. As a great alternative to highest quality Cabernet Sauvignons, this 5 years old Tannat is just slowly getting to its prime.

I decanted my wine and let it breath for more than hour. When I got to it, I was rewarded by rich and lovely taste of raspberries, ripe plums combined with classy cedar from oak. The big tannins are now smooth and round, very important aspect for balance and quality of this wine.

Bodegas Carrau Tannat de Reserva can age for years but is approachable right now for a really special gourmet experience. Its Grand Reserva, called Amat, would be a wonderful value for somebody's cellar. Thanks to its high tannin content, the aging potential of Amat is endless. Tannat de Reserva, with a price tag under $ 15.00, is a serious "steal".
