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

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...

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.

Full bodied, dry, a bit acidic, and rich in tannins. There's cherry and berry flavors after a swirl on the palate, maybe even a little chocolate. So tannins upfront and the fruitfullness to finish.

We had the 2015 Vintage on 9/14/18. There were tastes of dark fruit and plum. No tannin, some smokiness and a short finish.
