A powerful Tannat from an Amador County-based producer who usually toils in Zinfandel, this wine makes a bold statement of licorice and meaty game and is plenty rustic and savage, very oaky and bursting with big tannins. If you like blackberry pie alongside dark toffee and caramel, you'll like this.
