Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clean dark fruit flavours and extremely smooth mouthfeel. Lingering elegant dark fruit finish with hint of spice.
Tasted Oct. 2016
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From the look of this dark brooding wine one would expect mouth puckering tannins. Surprisingly, this French blend of 80% Tannat and 20% Cabernet Franc is fairly smooth. There is enough acidity and fruit to balance out this full bodied red and make it quite drinkable now Smokey aromas of leather and dark fruits. Be sure and pair it with something weighty; braised beef, stew, bison or elk would all work well. Tasted Oct. 2/2016
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Such an interesting and compelling wine - layers of rubbed blackberry leaf, dried berry, tar and charcoal, bitter chocolate and tobacco leaf, substantial tannins and great structure. I kept diving for another taste! Open it up for an hour or two then serve with beef or game.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby with aromas of dusty blueberry, graphite, and blackberry. The taste is juicy, and not as tannic as one would expect. The blueberry from the aroma comes through, as well as some plum. There a definitely grippy tannins, but the acidity balances it out quite well. Pair with very rare steak, or hard cheeses and nuts.
This southern French red wine is made from grapes grown on vines that are 40 years old and older - vieilles vignes. This Madiran wine is a blend of Tannat and Cabernet Franc grapes that was aged in oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews
