Review for Don David (Argentina) Reserve Tannat

We opened this along with the Altimus (also from Michel Torino, also from Winesale). I've never had Tannat as a varietal, so this was totally new to me. However, the descriptions I found of it left me thinking it would be similar to Petite Sirah (Durif). The color was not disappointing - deep inky purple you couldn't read through. Plums and toasty almonds on the nose, nice ripe blackberries and plums on the taste. Long, lingering finish with some acid. The surprise is that the tannins were quite fine - just enough to give structure without being shocking. I can see the appeal of this very approachable wine; however, we found it quite simple and uninteresting when compared with the Altimus. Of course, the pricing reflects this as well... Overall enjoyable wine and worth checking out - we had it with steaks off the grill and it worked well.
