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

Hefty tannins, little gritty, but they weren't bitter. This is a black, dark berry, tar, pipe tobacco wine. Got better with air.

So here comes the WS of the year top 100 # 41 tannat from Uruguay but I don’t quite see the 90 points. Maybe more decanting and more focus next time...

Everyone should drink #Tannat from #Uruguay This was delicious - round tannins, rich black fruit, pepper, coffee, a touch of vanilla from the oak (but not too much), nice mineral backbone and an extra long finish. This wine is for real.

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.

Amazing good red from South America , was recommended to pair well with duck and lamb. Good structure and balance with dark red fruit and plum flavors.
