Laffont "Hecate" Madiran 2006

Opaque purple.

Vinturi - very deep nose of blackberry sauce, damp earth, oak spice and licorice. More lifted than it sounds.

Shows intense, linear flavors of blackest of black fruit, gauze, bacon and tar. Acid-driven tannin really coats all the teeth in the finish. Not brutal, however. Loaded & killer, but needs many years to express in the mouth - say 10-15.

$30. 100% Tannat, I think.
