Château Peyros Tannat/Cabernet Franc 2016

There was a hint that this was going to be a bigger wine, and that was that they added Cab Franc to soften the tannat … I think this might be my first tannat. Inky dark in color with a nice cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice rich vibrant cherry notes along with some dark chocolate. On the medium length finish the wine displays some vibrant acidity, rustic tartness and firm notes. It’s not to the point of green notes, more of an inelegant sharpness that you can either love of loath. If your looking for a smooth food friendly wine, ya this isn’t that. We paired it with a striploin and it went well. I did decant it for a bit and it softened a little … Interestingly enough, on the back of the bottle, they actually recommend decanting it.

Château Peyros Tannat/Cabernet Franc 2016 from LCBO

The Cabernet Franc softens the Tannat’s tannins in this full-bodied wine. There is a definite structure, but it fits snugly into the black fruits and ripe acidity. This rich wine is ready to drink. Best Buy. Score – 90. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, April 1, 2020)
