Deep berry, chocolate, chalk, smoke. Smooth tannins with structure. Decent length finish. Way outperforms its price point. Great job Uruguay!!

This wine I picked up this week thinking it was from Chile because it was in the Chile section of the store I frequent. I thought this tannat would be interesting to try. I was just going off knowing about tannat, so I picked it up. I did not read the label as closely I usually do. When I decided to open this 2016 Bodega Garzón Tannat Reserve I finally read the label closely and found that it is from Uruguay. What a pleasant surprise and I am happy I picked this up.

The nose was very pungent upon opening with a very heavy funk so I let it open up for an hour. After an hour the fruit started to show themselves. There is still the presence of funk but not as heavy as when first opened then the black fruits came out, black cherry, black raspberry, lack plum, baker's chocolate, vanilla and smoke.

On the palate the beautiful black fruit continues with black cherry, black plum, blackberry, dark spice, just a hint of well blended oak, smoke and rich soil.

This wine is full bodied with a well rounded mouth feel with medium + acidity and medium + leaning more to the plus side firm tannins that lead to a long dark fruit finish. A continued wonderful weekend to you all and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Vanilla and soft baking spice permeates the nostrils here.

Red berry, tabac, espresso, spices, soft and silky mouthfeel, wrapping up with a good peppery finish. Good acid /\ tannin combo, and an all around solid wine.
I have a great love of Tannat from Uruguay, and this furthers that notion. Great wines at great prices.
¡Delicioso!

Malbec anyone. I don’t have much reference here so this was my first thought. Juicy.

Almost like a effervescent cote de rhone. Floral nose and chocolate cherry cordial. Easy drinking

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...
