Finca las Moras Tannat Tulum Valley Reserva 2008

Member Review by butkus:

Las Moras Tannat 2007 A powerful, intense wine with a ripe nose, dense on the palate,smells of mint, chocolate and pencil shavings. Using the Martin Gersh method of airing(1 hour eqals 1 year in the bottle) and drinking at cellar temperature(55 to 60 degrees Farenheit), after airing for 4 to 5 hours, the wine showed plenty of fruit, less tannic in the mouth and a moderate finish.Pretty good for the price(Canadians pay much more for wine due to heavy taxation)...it and the Catena Los Alamos malbec are on the list of my house wines. I give it 3 1/2 stars for taste and 4 stars for value.

Pretty easy to drink, a little smoky. Not too dry.

Tannat is such a fascinating grape, it just makes this wine worthwhile right there!! As for the aromas, definitely oaky, tobacco smoke and leather, the appearance is great, and it tastes like dried fruit with a hint of vanilla and in your face tannins. The tannins are certainly the best part - great dry and leathery feel typical of tannat that lingers for several seconds. However, do not expect the powerful experience that comes with a solid French Madiran. This wine is very enjoyable and is a great value.
