Haitza (80% Tannat, 20% Cab Sauv) is aged 18-months in foudre and demi-muid, and has sour cherry, blackcurrant, liquorice, and caramel on the nose. The palate is infinitely silky with wild black fruits (ripe, black cherry), remarkable persistence of subtle notes of menthol, eucalyptus and liquorice and tannins which are mellow but still fresh.
