2018 WCS Tannat
94-96 pts (JD)
"Made from 100% Tannat, the inky colored 2018 WCS Tannat boasts a beautiful bouquet of black and blue fruits, espresso, ground herbs, liquid violets, and pepper aromas and flavors. This pure, full-bodied, concentrated red has ripe, sexy tannins, good acidity, and a great finish."
- Jeb Dunnuck, Oct 2019
"The 2018 WCS Tannat performs a perfect balancing act of structure, depth, and elegance. A fresh compote of blackberry and black cherry frame the wine throughout, while waves of subtle cigar box, grilled pork belly, and Earl Grey tea prepared with vanilla bean complete the aroma. Pressed violets, red cherry, and worn leather persist on the palate, with pots de crème and the faintest hint of roasted Hatch chili pepper on the finish. Aged in 48% new French oak and 30% once-used French oak, the wine is full-bodied with smooth, mouth-coating layers." - The Jada Winemaking Team
