El Esteco 2015 Fincas Notables Tannat 750ml
Bright full ruby. Blackberry pastille, black plum, licorice, tar and violet on the vibrant nose. Juicy, fine-grained and savory, conveying excellent intensity to its flavors of dark berries, black cherry and spices. Finishes with very smooth tannins and superb length. Wonderfully refined Tannat. Drink through 2023.
