2006 Lodi Tannat
This is probably the biggest of the first three releases from our Lodi winery trip mentioned below, but there is an elegance here that made the winemakers feel that Tannat had a tremendous future in Lodi. Exceptional value.
This is a big wine. Intense blue-fruited nose of perfumed loganberry. The dusty notes hint that much more is to come as this bad boy opens up. On the palate, the wine is broad and deep with sweet tannins and explodes with jammy blue fruit (and a hint of thyme). The finish is tight but long.
Style: Full, Bold
