Black garnet color. Earthy aromas of pine, moss, and dried blackberries with a lightly tannic, crisp, dry full body and a peppery, distinctive, medium-long thyme, green peppercorn, and wild mushrooms finish with earthy tannins and moderate oak flavor. An inky, earthy wine that will be a pleasure with French Cuisine.

Tannat

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.
