The formerly-known-as Twisted Tree, has undergone a momentous overhaul with dark yet intriguing paper-cut labels created by New York-based artist Andrea Dezso. Deszo's work has been exhibited at several museums and galleries worldwide as well as two subway stations in NYC.
Rarely known outside of Madiran, France (also now found in Uruguay, Europe and North America in small amounts), the rather meaty and tannic Tannat actually shines in this blend with Syrah.
It is impressively rich and chocolaty on the nose with plums and kirsch, purple flowers and some undertones of wild herbs. It is a broad and mouth filling wine with a chewy texture that is followed by a long, bittersweet cocoa and espresso finish.
