Dusty ruby color. Attractive aromas and flavors of mocha frosting, neapolitan ice cream sundae, toasted coconut flakes, and beeswax with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, appealing, long finish imparting shades of smoked nuts, cassis-tomato tartlet, cappuccino, and cedar mulch with firm, barky tannins and moderate oak flavor. A rich, vibrant, chewy red that screams for a well marbled steak.

Tannat

Wine Glass Zinfandel.jpg
Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Tannat is a red wine made from the grape of the same name. While it is grown in the Basque region of south west France, today it is best known in Uruguay. Here Tannat is ripe with deep purple color and firm tannins. Most versions from Uruguay are inexpensive, priced from $10 to $15 a bottle, no doubt as there is not a great demand for the wine. Pair these wines with rich red meats or grilled foods.
