Domaine Arretxea Irouleguy 2017
The best region in France that you have never heard of! Located in Basque country on the Spanish border in the shadow of the Pyrénées the organically grown blend of Tannat, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon slowly ripen to peak maturity. Dark plum, cassis, and woodsy notes. There some earth, dried grass clippings, and herbs. The palate is especially smooth for the often unforgiving Tannat grape. Ready to drink now or store for 5 years.
