Domaine Arretxea, 'Cuvee Haitza', Irouleguy, France 2010
This Tannat-dominated wine is powerful, yet harmonious and elegant. Lovely and smooth, with fresh appeal, the creaminess of the oak and touch of vanilla contributes to the fairly lean palate.
Full-bodied, it displays rich, black fruit with soft tannins, and a long and balanced finish. One for the meat lovers, it is a great match for beef or game.
