El Esteco Fincas Notables Las Mercedes Tannat Cuartel No. 28 2015

Calchaqui Valley, Salta, North, ArgentinaThis dark, brooding tannat is only just starting to unwind itself at six years of age. It's a wine that's as much about savoury accents like graphite and tar as it is judicious toasty oak and blackberry fruit. It's still quite linear and firmly structured, so give this some time in the decanter while you fire up the charcoal grill.Tasted: 01 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 31.99 select private retailers Producer: Bodega El EstecoDistributors: Dandurand
