If you’re looking for a bold red that doesn’t hold back on sheer power, look no further than Tannat. Originally from Southwest France, where it is the main grape in the red wines of Madiran, it has also taken hold in Uruguay. There, producers are so taken with Tannat that it is considered Uruguay’s national grape. With its dark almost black skin the Tannat grape is very high in antioxidants and is at the heart of the “French Paradox” (high fat diet, lower heart disease) conversation.

Ripe blackberry aromas. The palate of this Tannat, from a benchmark vintage, is ripe and full in feel. Blackberry jam and spice flavors are ripe and satisfying, while this is warm and complete on the finish.
