Bodegas Carrau Reserva Tannat 2013

Deep purple with aromas of blackberry, plum, earth, and a little eucalyptus and dried herbs. Velvety in the mouth, with nice structured tannins and medium-high acidity. The flavours are plum, blackberry, and raspberry, and the finish is medium slightly tannic blackberry.

I'm a fan of fairly tannic wines, and I don't think we see enough Tannats in general. I'd pair this with charcuterie or hard cheeses. Also just a great wine for sipping in front of a fire on a cold winter night.

$15.95 at the LCBO
