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. Our 2005 Tannat was produced by Brian Graham at Silenus Winery in Napa.  Alcohol level is 14.9%. Only one barrel (23 cases) was produced (we plan to produce much more in the future).
