Occasional Wine Note: Our first wine from Uruguay needed to be a memorable one and we've absolutely checked that box with this gem. Tannat is one of the biggest, most tannic red grapes produced to the extent that it can be overwhelming and off-putting. Make no mistake, this is a big wine, but the blend more or less tames the beast showcasing a beautiful aromas and flavors of violets, ripe plums, hints of red berries, and baking spices with big, but well-integrated tannins. Beauty and the beast!

    On current form, this is Uruguay’s best red blend, a world-class cuvée of Tannat with 35% Merlot and 20% Tempranillo. Aged in 90% new oak, it’s effortlessly harmonious: top notes of violet, sweet spices and cut grass, palate of cassis, plum, strawberry, nuanced tannins and a detailed, satisfying finish.

    A charming and full-bodied blend of 45% Tannat, 35% Merlot and 20% Tempranillo. Complex nose of black plums, cigar box and violet. Full and ripe, with an underlying savouriness and well-integrated oak. Fantastic length leaves you wanting more. Wait for it to come together fully.
