Michel Torino Don David Tannat Reserve 2008 An opaque purple-black with a brighter, narrow purple rim, and shiny. A sweetly floral nose, blackberry and faintly volatile with hints of sultana and tutti fruity. A concentrated palate with coal-dust, powdery tannins. A big, mouth-filling wine with blackberry bush and tarry notes, powerful but not closed, and a long finish showing refreshing blackberry acidity and coolness presumably due to its high-altitude origins. This acidity helped cut the weight and power of the wine, preventing it from becoming over-heavy, keeping the fruit from straying into the jammy spectrum and leaving the finish clean, with no alcoholic heat. Later the wine gained faint cedary notes from the oak. A delightful wine.
