Domaine Arretxea Irouléguy Hegoxuri 2005

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

The best red wines from Iroulèguy, the southwestern most appellation in France, are often described as tasting "the way Bordeaux used to" - meaning, in this case, high-toned and full of floral cassis fruit, structured, tannic, and age worthy, with grippy tannins and rustic charm. From an excellent vintage, this wine is essentially an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat (with a bit of Cab Franc). Some neutral oak is used.
