Food Pairing Notes
A big assertive wine like this, that is fruit forward and has firm strong tannins, will pair with red meats that are well caramelized from grilling or roasting and accompanied by red-wine based sauces. The Tannat has a particular smoky, “roasted meat” flavor profile, which lends itself to earthy mushroom dishes, bean and smoked meat dishes like cassoulette studded with sausages and duck, as well as a simple, well caramelized beef roast. Remember the food should be as big in flavor as is our Tannat. For those of you who are cigar smokers, you have found your after-dinner wine!
