Wine Recommendation

Ripken Vineyards and Winery

2008 Tannat

One of the finest wines we have seen. Inky in appearance, and also the aroma of ink, as well as fennel, sage, brine, leather, library paste, wax, and violets. Piles of dark dark fruit - cassis, cured olive, black currant, dried fig. Handles its massive tannins very well. Amazing grace. Very limited production with just 30 cases made.
