Deep purple and opaque. Nose is full of blue and black fruit, chocolate, and dried herbs. A full bodied palate coats your mouth in a delicious way. Firm tannins with silky edges. Medium acid. Medium complexity. Juicy length. A very well made and serious wine of incredible value. Perfect for an #asado #tannat #uruguay #bodegagarzon #ctbucklinwine

My first Tannat and my first wine from Uruguay, appropriate since it is considered their national grape (apparently that’s a South American thing). From small hillside estate blocks located 11 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and aged in French oak. This is the 2015 vintage, and #41 on Wine Spectator’s top 100 wines of 2017. Juicy plum, blueberry, with a tinge of bramble are followed by dried herbs, asphalt, dark chocolate, and some tertiary floral notes. Considering the varietal’s name literally means “tannin” I had harsh expectations, and while the tannins are firm, they have a velvet feel about them. A superb pairing with tenderloin.

Purple. Legs. Excellent. Simple. Smooth. Short finish. Could bottle age a bit.
