1. Lidio Carraro Tannat Grande Vindima (2008)

Next » 1 of 12
Previously available for $101.83
16% ABV Dark, brooding, dried fruit, huge black tea, earl grey tea note, dried black cherry, black plum, spice cookie, rich and smooth, fairly large scaled, lovely fruit, black fruit, earthy, some rosemary, dried herb, melted licorice, black fruit, bit on pencil lead, lots of fruit on the backend and onto the finish, plummy, prunyish, lots of ripe tannins, powerful but soft, has a moment on the finish that recalls Amarone but this is much fresher, and deeper, wow this is crazy, powerful and almost over the top with nary a sign of the alcohol, a little dry port Iike, bitter tannic finish is a nice counterpart to the intensity of the fruit. Not really for me but this is a knockout. 94pts
