We are fascinated by the Tannat grape, in part because it produces such wonderful concentrated, inky reds, and in part because it so relatively unknown outside of the Madiran region of south-west France. Tannat is also grown in Uruguay, where it is their "flagship" red grape.  We got our Tannat from Silvaspoon Vineyards, located in Galt, California, and it has produced a wonderfully flavorsome, full-bodied wine with highlights of spice, plums, ripe berries, and smoke. This is a big, rich wine great with game, sausages, roasted meats, and strong aged cheeses.Luscious notes of raspberry, boysenberry, minerals, sage , violets and a touch of toasty oak. The mouth is rich and bright showing black cherry, pomegranate, tar, mixed wild berries, sweet tannins and a long finish. 145 Cases produced
