Dark, glass-clinging ruby red with black core. Inviting nose of tarry blackberry and burnt violets. Full palate yields the same in a cobbler with dried plum (not prune… more desiccated) and a hint of cocoa Creme. Dusty medium tannins… far less assertive than the primary variety would portend. Medium plus acidity. Evidence that Uruguay can produce premium wines at a reasonable price. True to their Italian heritage, the Pisano brothers make wines that fit the local cuisine. In this case, beef is where it's at, but any hearty fare (ribs, root veggies, tenderloin, cassoulet) will pair well. Drink now through 2028. — 4 days ago

This is a tannat grape wine, not cabernet sauvignon. I got the 2017 vintage and it was really splendid. Robust and well balanced with notes of wood and spices. — 2 years ago

Rich smoke and toasty tannins on the nose.
Meaty taste with berry flavor. This is a thickly characteristic Tannat grape, and it's my first. Shiraz energy with a cab invitation.
Energetic and lively, something to talk about. — a month ago
Star bright yellow gold. Inviting nose of earthy lemon and marzipan. Firm, zingy acidity from entry to finish on the medium full palate which yields lemon zest, concrete block, and citrus rind. Finish is moderate and lemony. This full-bodied style of Torrontes is an excellent foil for hearty seafood or pork dishes: a perfect white counterpart to Uruguay’s signature red variety, Tannat. Drink now through 2025 or a little beyond. — 2 months ago
Well balanced & fine balance but fading fruit and colour. Drink now or yesterday — 2 years ago
