Michel Torino ‘Don David Reserve’ Cafayate Valley Tannat 2011

Other Red from Argentina
Review Date : 12-Feb-2014
Very dark, black-purple hued red, impenetrable and very youthful in appearance. The bouquet features tightly bound aromas of blackberry fruit infused with savoury earth and mineral notes, lifted with black and red floral elements. The nose reveals dark herbs unfolding from the core with some breathing. Medium-full bodied, a tightly packed and concentrated core of black berried fruits is the feature on palate. The fruit sweetness is moderated by chalky, mineral notes and a firm, fine, dry tannins. The extraction provides structure, but the palate has good linearity and drive, and the flavours carry through to a sustained finish lifted by oak nuances. This is a concentrated and densely packed Tannat with black fruits and mineral flavours along with a firm structure. Serve with slow-cooked red meats and hard cheeses over the next 5-7 years. Hand-picked fruit, fermented to 14.0% alc., 70% of the wine aged 12 months in American and French oak. 17.5/20 Feb 2014 RRP $17.99
